Marlow Church of England Infant School

PE

Intent

At Marlow Church of England Infant School, we are committed to ensuring that we help every child create a lifelong love of movement, develop healthy lifestyles and a new ambition.

Physical education is the planned, progressive learning that takes place within the school curriculum timetabled time and is delivered to all children.

The context for the learning is physical activity, with children experiencing a broad range of activities, including sport and dance. Physical education aims to ensure all children become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.

Our aim is to deliver a high-quality inspiring PE curriculum that focuses on ‘stage not age’. Our PE curriculum is specifically designed and delivered to enthuse, inspire, include and engage all pupils whatever their stage and ability.

Children develop their fundamental movement skills alongside developing their physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills. This supports our school’s commitment to the mental health wellbeing of all our children.

Working on the children’s ‘cogs’ - social, personal, cognitive, creative, physical and health and fitness, alongside the school’s Christian values, helps children to reach their full potential and develop essential learning skills for their future.

The overall aim is to ensure that we develop and nurture the whole child, to enable them to succeed in any walk of life.

We aim to support our children and our love of movement with educating and helping our families to be more engaged in their children’s well being and health.
