Physical Education Intent

At West Hoathly, we believe Physical Education (PE) is a vital part of school life and ultimately pupils’ future well-being. We value Physical Education as an important part of pupils’ entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. We believe that a high-quality Physical Education curriculum shapes well rounded pupils who understand how to take care of themselves, both physically and mentally in order to be successful as adults. We aim to provide a progressive and enjoyable PE curriculum that meets the needs of pupils from Reception to Year 6. The curriculum allows pupils to experience a range of activities that help them to develop their health, fitness and wellbeing. We aim to give our pupils opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Physical Education should inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We ensure that all pupils, wherever they start in life, have a high-quality Physical Education experience and education as we believe this should be a right, not a privilege.

The aims of our Physical Education curriculum is to deliver a curriculum that is accessible to all pupils, so they know more, remember more and understand more. Our Physical Education curriculum aims to:

·      Support pupils to understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle (food, nutrition, physical activities, positive mindset etc.), and equip them with the tools to do so through health and well-being education.

·      Give pupils the opportunities to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.

·      Enhance existing skills, learn new skills and give pupils the opportunity to be introduced to a range of sports, clubs, teams and organisations.

·      Engage with our local community and be active citizens to help promote a sense of belonging and pride in our local area, e.g. asking local sports people to come into school to work with pupils, utilising local amenities to support physical activities.
