Why we teach PE  at Longford Church of England Primary School:


In PE we create and inspire an active generation to embrace physical activity, making a life-long positive impact on their own physical health and well-being.


All children will develop the fundamental skills, understanding and passion to enable them to progress physically through an inspirational, unique and fully inclusive PE curriculum. 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.


Our curriculum will challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It will teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. All children will develop the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators.


We aspire for children to be physically active and adopt a positive mind-set, believing that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience in a safe and supportive environment. Children will flourish through a dynamic, varied and stimulating program of activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.
