Physical Education

Within Physical Education at Bishop John Robinson CofE Primary School, we strive to be the best we can and to encourage all pupils to join in learning and play. 

The skills of Physical Education are essential skills for life-long learning. We aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future.

Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.

It is our intent to inspire children to discover life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.

Our intent is to ensure that the we create a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and including pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life as well as fulfilling the requirements of the national curriculum for PE including:

  • developing competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • being physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engaging in competitive sports and activities 
  • leading healthy, active lives.

We aim to embed this securely and consistently across the school, supported by cross-curricular links and reference where appropriate.
