“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.” Plato
Statement of Intent
PE at Charnwood aims to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. We follow the National Curriculum and aim to offer children a wide range of sports that children might not get to experience anywhere else. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. Furthermore, we want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of a team. Children should be able to enjoy competition, inside and outside of school, whilst playing with fairness and respect. Learners should learn that the only way to be successful is to work hard, show resilience and believe that anything is possible.
Finally, all children should understand how to live a healthy lifestyle away from school by recognising the need for regular fun physical activity, socialising, avoidance of stress, healthy nutrition and quality sleep.
