PE

At Village Primary School, P.E is highly regarded as an important part of school life.  P.E has a planned programme of activities, contributing to the development of the whole child.  We aim to engage all children in a broad and balanced curriculum that builds confidence and promotes self-belief.  We aim to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities – including those of a competitive nature.  Through a balance of individual, paired and group activities we aim to cater for the different strengths, needs and preferences of each child, using differentiated activities where appropriate.

Village Primary School is committed to raising children’s health and fitness through quality P.E. activities. We invest heavily in the use of coaches to enrich the P.E. curriculum and to enhance the quality of children’s learning.  Through our programme, children have opportunities to participate in sports such as Dance, Gymnastics, Tennis, Cricket, Tag Rugby and Athletics.

 

Vision

All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. At The Village Primary School, we aim to inspire, challenge and motivate children so that they can thrive and express themselves confidently in a wide range of sports. Through leadership we offer all children the chance to explore, dream and discover their full potential.

It is important that our children ‘learn to lead’. Therefore we offer all of our children the opportunity to lead activities during their school life. Leadership gives children the understanding of what it is like to have responsibility, to show respect for rules and brings the added challenge of organisation, communication and teamwork.

We also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to participate in a variety of competitive sports during their school life, giving them the understanding of: what competition feels like, what it is like to be part of a team, and to be able to both win and lose with equal grace.

Our vision for Physical Education is that every child should have the opportunity to develop the physical confidence and competence to enjoy being active through a wide range of activities. We hope this will lead to a life-long passion of being physically active and healthy.

We believe that all of these opportunities will help our children to develop into well-rounded and balanced individuals all set for life’s challenges.
