At Billesley Primary School we pride ourselves on providing a high-quality Physical Education curriculum that enables all our children irrelevant of their background to perform at the highest levels possible. Physical Education plays a vital role in developing the child holistically...
Physical Education curriculum development within the Early Years Foundation Stage focuses on improving:
• Coordination • Control • Manipulation • Special awareness • Movement
Physical Education within the primary years focuses on the National Curriculum key aims: • To develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities • To be physically active for sustained periods of • To engage in competitive sports and activities • To lead healthy, active lives
We believe that the key principles of the National Curriculum will only be sustained if we strengthen our partnership with parents and carers. We strive to do this through parental workshops, assemblies, competitions and after-school clubs.
We aim to provide opportunities for our children to become confident and physically literate in a way which supports their wellbeing. In addition to this, we aim to provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities in order to build resilience and embed values such as teamwork, fairness and respect.
At Billesley we are committed to building an ethos of collaborative and competitive learners through providing opportunities for them to participate in a range of physical activities from the Foundation Stage right through to Key Stage Two. All of our children participate in intraschool sports competitions and a high majority in inter-school sports competitions.
By providing a wide range of physical development activities we aim to prepare our children to become physically literate individuals throughout their life.
