Physical Education Intent


At Shrivenham CE Primary school, we recognise the importance of physical education and the key role it plays in promoting long term healthy lifestyles. The intent of our Physical Education curriculum is to provide all children with high quality physical and sporting opportunities. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their full potential as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our learners through dynamic PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We would like our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle through the teaching of healthy life choices. Through our delivery of PE we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop core values and transferrable life skills such as fairness, respect and celebration as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.
