Physical Education Intent

At Barnfields Primary School, PE is a vital part of school life and ultimately children’s future well-being. We believe that PE is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development. It is therefore our intent to provide an inclusive, broad and balanced PE curriculum that develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can perform and compete with increasing competence and confidence. Our curriculum ensures all children have the opportunity to flourish in a range of different physical activities -these include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities.  Beyond merely a subject, we also believe that participation in sporting activity is a key element of developing a school in which pupils are proud of the community in which they belong. Children have the opportunity to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as teamwork, fairness, resilience and respect.
