Physical Education

PE at Peatmoor Community Primary School aims to develop a fun, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel both in competitive sports and other physically demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and well-being. PE at Peatmoor is an imperative element of the curriculum and through the selection of suitably differentiated tasks, children, irrespective of their ability, are motivated to further develop their individual potential. Children compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We aim to give all children the opportunity to extend their range of physical skills and develop their proficiency as well as appreciating the benefits of participation. Through physical education, we aim to develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills, develop personal quality such as self-esteem, confidence, tolerance and empathy.
