Physical Education – Intent, Implementation and Impact
PE at Sherburn Primary School aims to develop the knowledge, skills and
capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.
It is our intent at Sherburn to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
Pupils at Sherburn participate in weekly high-quality PE and sporting activities. Our PE curriculum incorporates a variety of activities to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being.

Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Sherburn, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. It is hoped the PE curriculum will encourage pupils to:
* participate in all PE lessons
* achieve age related expectations in PE
* enjoy sport and seek additional extra-curricular activities both within school and in the local community
* show a good understanding of healthy lifestyles
