We believe physical education is an essential contributor to the development of the whole child. Through a high-quality physical education programme, pupils will develop physical competence and confidence. Our physical education provision will contribute to the personal development, health and wellbeing, enjoyment, success and achievement of all pupils across the whole curriculum and beyond. We are proud of our success in local competitions and encourage our children to strive for excellence in their conduct as a competitor and respect for others.
We will do this by:
Physical Education at St Mary Bourne Primary provides pupils with the opportunities to be creative, competitive and face up to different challenges, as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy and active lifestyle. Pupils learn how to think in different ways and make decisions in response to competitive and challenging activities. They learn how to reflect on their performance to improve the quality of their work. PE enables pupils to develop personally and socially. They work as individuals and teams, further developing the school values of teamwork, respect, enthusiasm and of excellence.
