PE Intent and Implementation Statement
Here at Carlton Junior and Infant school, we believe that Physical Education (PE) is an essential part of life and we therefore think it is a vital part of our curriculum offer. Our curriculum offer has been designed to build on the skills needed to meet the end of Key Stage objectives laid out by the National Curriculum (NC) in that we aim to ensure all children:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lifestyles.
It is our intention to provide high-quality, fun and engaging teaching and learning opportunities to all children so that they can build their confidence to co-operate, communicate, collaborate and compete with each other in a way which supports their overall health and fitness. We aim for all children to be physically active for sustained periods of time and to make informed decisions about leading healthy and active lifestyles.
At Carlton, we have developed a progressive curriculum that inspires all children to develop their sporting personality, knowledge and skills across a broad range of sporting activities. Opportunities to succeed and excel in competitive sports and other physically demanding activities also embeds important values and transferable life skills such as tolerance, fairness and respect. Our commitment to inclusivity ensures that our children have purposeful opportunities to attain optimum physical, social, emotional and spiritual development as well as good health.
We are passionate about the development of life-skills. Swimming is an important life skill and we aspire for all children at Carlton to leave us having met at least the minimum requirements of the National Curriculum.
It is our aim for children at Carlton to build strong foundations for a lifelong love of sport and/or physical activity! We encourage children to adopt a positive growth mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience.
