Physical Education at Bardsey is a crucial part of a child’s education as it can help them towards an active and healthy lifestyle.
We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness, whilst boosting self-confidence, self-esteem and supporting the development of social skills; encouraging all children to become physically active, successful, lifelong learners.
We are aware that research has shown a direct link between children’s physical and mental health and therefore we aim to provide experiences that will inspire pupils to not only develop physically but ensure mental wellbeing and a desire to succeed.
We encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals.
As the children move through the school, knowledge and skills are built upon and learning takes place sequentially. Our curriculum is designed in a way that enables the teachers to have the flexibility to ensure that the children develop knowledge and skills through the use of a wide range of sports and activities and enabling them to reach their full potential. This is supported with the use of external professional coaches who deliver lessons and provide CPD opportunities for staff to further enhance their subject knowledge.
At Bardsey, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.
Our PE Curriculum, along with PSHCE and Science, teaches children about the importance of healthy living and learning about the need for good nutrition.
