Yealmpstone Farm Primary School believes that P.E. is essential to the development of the whole child-academic, social, emotional, spiritual and physical. It provides the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and promotes character building, co-operation and self-esteem
THE AIMS OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION
The Order for Physical Education in the National Curriculum provides a basis for us to deliver a broad, balanced and differentiates physical education programme which helps us to fulfil our main aims which are:-
We aim to deliver a balanced programme which provides children with opportunities to promote physical development and competence and to develop artistic, aesthetic and linguistic understanding through movement.
We aim to give all children the opportunity to extend their range of physical skills and develop their proficiency as well as appreciating the benefits of participation. Through physical education we aim to develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills, develop personal qualities, such as self-esteem, confidence, tolerance and empathy, and help forge links between the school and its community.
At Yealmpstone Farm Primary School we are committed to providing at least two hours of high quality PE per week for all our pupils. The pupils at our school develop many physical skills by taking part in sports including gymnastics, dance, football, netball, tag rugby, tennis and basketball, cross country, athletics and swimming in KS2. We have taken part in a range of team events including: netball, tag rugby, cross country and athletics at a local level. We are able to provide sporting opportunities through our extracurricular activities which are provided by both teachers and external sports coaches.
PE co-ordinator: Mr D Baker
We believe that Physical Education (PE) is fundamental to our children’s development and learning. Not only does it engage and motivate children, but it is a great way for our children to develop life skills such as teamwork, determination and respect.
