PE : curriculum intent

At Marshland Primary Academy we recognise and value the importance of Physical Education in inspiring our pupils to lead healthy lifestyles, to be physically active and to obtain values such as fairness, respect and resilience. We aim to develop a fun, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to participate and succeed in physically demanding activities. including competitive sports. We do this through adhering to the aims of the National Curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:

  • develop skills and competence in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in a range of sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives
  • have opportunities to cooperate and collaborate with others
  • nurture confident, resilient children who strive for their personal best and celebrate their own and others’ successes
  • have a keen sense of fairness and fair play

Through enrichment activities and practices, we aim to raise the profile of PE and expose our children to activities they may never have had the opportunity to engage with. Our PE curriculum is based on an enhanced model of the Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum with a clear progression structure from nursery to Year 6. This progression of skills has been planned in order to build on the skills needed to meet the end of Key Stage objectives in the National Curriculum.
