At Barnett Wood, we aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles throughout infant school and beyond.
We aim to provide an engaging and challenging curriculum, that allows everyone to enthusiastically take part and develop skills, whilst also providing opportunities for learners to exceed their own expectations.
We look to engender a healthy life-long love of physical activity, whilst giving the children the opportunity where they enjoy working hard together to achieve success both individually and as a team. We do this by developing the attitudes, skills and knowledge required to be a leader and provide memorable experiences throughout a student’s journey within Physical Education. High quality PE education allows pupils to understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle, whilst fostering excitement for physical activity and an accuracy in performing movements within sport and daily life.
At the end of the year children across the whole school participate in a sports day, this allows parents to observe and share children's pride in their sporting achievements.
Children can develop skills they learn in PE in their lessons, during lunchtimes and in their own physical activity at home. Pupils engage in discussions about the importance of keeping their bodies healthy, key vocabulary related to the learning and answering questions about how they could adapt or change a movement. By the time children leave Barnett Wood, our core aim is to ensure that all children achieve the range of skills set out in the national curriculum.
