Physical Education (PE) Intent Statement
At Sefton Park Infant and Junior schools we recognise the importance of providing a varied range of provision in which challenges are embraced and learning is celebrated. Children are given equal opportunities to participate in a wide range of sports to ensure a lifelong love of physical activity and an understanding of the importance of physical wellbeing.
Confident: We endeavour to provide positive experiences in PE. Children are celebrated not just for success but also effort. We are able to provide a wide range of physical activities in which children work in team and individual challenges and in both co-operative and competitive scenarios. In doing this, children are able to build resilience and learn to cope with success and failure in a positive environment whilst developing integral teamwork and communication skills.
Creativity: Our PE lessons follow an exciting and diverse PE curriculum in which children take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Team sports are a fantastic way for children to express their creativity through the development of teamwork and problem solving skills. More individual sports such as dance or gymnastics also ensure that children are able to develop a better understanding of themselves and the world around them.
Curiosity: We listen to the children and are able to provide a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities in which children can follow their own interests. By engaging with children’s curiosity, we provide a well rounded provision where all children are supported and are able to flourish in any sport that they wish to explore.
