Each child has the opportunity to partake in at least 2 hours of Physical Education lessons a week, which is divided between outside games and inside P.E. Within these sessions the children participate in gymnastics, games, dance, swimming and athletics. At Gorsemoor Primary School, we aim to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all of our pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We want to provide opportunities for our pupils to become physically literate and confident in a way, which supports their health and fitness as they move towards making their own choices as young adults. In addition, we aim to provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities in order to build character and help to embed values such as teamwork, fairness and respect.
The purpose of education is to provide young people with the knowledge and skills to prepare children for their diverse working lives, build character, teach knowledge for its own intrinsic value and ignite a love of learning.
Staff aim to promote active and healthy lifestyles
Children learn to understand the importance of exercising for a lifetime
Regular, physical activity is the best antidote to eliminate obesity and maintain an acceptable body weight. It also provides a positive alternative to watching television or playing on tablets, computers or mobile phones.
Many activities taught in PE require children to work in groups to solve problems or as a team. These opportunities are excellent for developing both leadership and cooperation skills.
Children are encouraged to improve their fitness levels during PE lessons, including muscular and cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility.
PE is especially important to children who have yet to develop their verbal communication skills. Thus, their confidence in physical abilities can lead to positive feelings of self-esteem.
