Our PE Curriculum Statement.

 

 

 

Physical education at the federation

Good physical and mental health is one of our key curriculum drivers.

PE in the Federation aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary to support the mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing of our children now and in their future. We aim to instil a lifelong interest in sport, active lifestyles and physical and mental well-being.

Our intent is to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities and become physically confident. To learn self-discipline, respect, teamwork and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.

In addition, children learn the importance and value of cooperating and collaborating with others, as part of a team, and an understanding of fairness and equity of play. We develop young leaders who are able to organise and officiate a range sporting activities.

We aim to ensure our children can swim at least 25 metres before the end of Year 6 and know how to remain safe in and around water.
