At St John's Church of England Infant School, we aim to ensure that all children lead healthy and active lives. Through our Physical Education Curriculum we aim to inspire a love for sports and physical activity. Challenge children to further develop their skills and engage in competitive tournaments. Educate children on how to lead a healthy lifestyle including healthy eating.
At our school it is our intent to enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination. We encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations and develop the way children perform their skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities. We demonstrate to our pupils how to improve the quality and control of their performance as well as teaching children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise. We develop our pupils’ enjoyment of physical activity through creative and imaginative activities both in games, dance and gymnastics. We embed an understanding in children of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own success. We strive to establish a high profile of physical education throughout our school and celebrate the sporting achievements of our pupils both in and out of school. We assess pupils learning, analyse and interpret the results to inform future planning and lessons.
