Intent and Implementation
‘Promoting healthy, active lifestyles’
At Town Field Primary School, we believe that physical education plays an important role in life long fitness, health and wellbeing. We support the government’s initiative to combat obesity and enjoy being active.
Through PE and sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work and ambition leading to improved concentration, attitude and academic achievement.
We aim to provide high quality teaching in PE through a broad and balanced curriculum that develops, motivates and enthuses every child to become a lifelong learner. The valuable acquisition of skills will progress throughout school with our younger children developing basis physical skills to then applying these skills in small sided games situations for our older children. These skills will be assessed at the end of each unit against specific criteria. We also aim to give opportunities for all children to develop their leadership, coaching and officiating skills.
