Sports and PE develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can participate with increasing confidence in a range of competitive and non-competitive physical activities.
PE promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills. At Blenheim Primary we acknowledge the Childhood Obesity Strategy and are committed to continuing our work with partners, promoting positive attitudes and healthy lifestyle choices. Therefore, we enable our children to make informed choices about the physical activities that are needed throughout their lives.
We aim to provide quality, physical activity opportunities both within and outside curriculum time which consider the needs and interests of all pupils; promote positive attitudes towards participation in physical activity; enable pupils to develop a full range of basic movement skills; increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the importance of physical activity; provide safe and stimulating areas in which children can play and be active.
