Early Years

Children have plenty of opportunities to practise physical education both with specialist teachers and their class tutors. All physical education classes are age appropriate aiming to help a child discover his or her own self-interests and to develop his or her natural abilities. These classes aim to develop the motor and coordination skills.

In addition to the specialist lessons, children also have many other opportunities to engage in PE activities during the school day. This includes break times when duty teachers actively encourage a variety of traditional games and sports. 

This programme aims to:

  • Recognise and value the possibilities of movement in a variety of activities
  • Acquire and develop skills, performing with increasing physical competence and confidence, in a range of physical activities and contexts 
  • Establish better inter-personal skills through play
  • Develop an understanding of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle
