PE Statement of Intent
At Willow Primary Academy we wish to promote physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of all children. We want pupils to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance lifelong positive attitudes towards physical activity. We believe that Physical Education (PE), experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe, such as being able to swim. We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Willow, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.
