Physical Education

Physical Education Intent Statement 

Roots to grow and wings to fly

Our Physical Education Curriculum is built on our vision of ‘Roots to Grow and Wings to Fly’ and inspires all children to succeed and excel within a wide variety of sports and activities, as well as embed the values we follow as a school and develop character and confidence. 

It is our aim through Physical Education that all children:

  • Experience a wide range of sports and activities to ignite passions and plant roots;
  • Are supported to develop healthy bodies and healthy minds;
  • Are provided with sporting opportunities that enable them to grow and develop as athletes, building on their prior active experiences;
  • Are supported to develop their progression of knowledge and skills within physical education, including swimming;
  • Develop and expand their vocabulary and literacy surrounding the subject of physical education and mental wellbeing;
  • Develop the core values held within our school and local community;
  • Encouraged to broaden their use of scientific and technical vocabulary;
  • Can deepen their understanding of sport through application and technique;
  • Are prepared for the next stage of their educational journey.

This will be achieved through exposure to a wide variety of sports and activities throughout their time at By Brook, as well as extra curricula activities to allow all children the experiences needed to ignite positive attitudes towards PE and sport. Through PE schemes, specialised teaching and coaching, Sports Partnerships, sports leadership responsibilities and events we aim to develop the children’s confidence to try new things and enrich their healthy, active lifestyles.
