PE at Codnor Primary School reflects the purposeful journey for the whole child. We provide opportunities for progression across the full breadth of the National Curriculum as well as equipping our children with lifelong skills that can be developed within and outside of PE (such as resilience, endurance and independence).
We intend to build and develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and PE in all children, helping to ensure a positive and healthy physical and mental outlook in the future, and helping all children to develop the essential skills needed for leadership and teamwork.
In PE, we aim to build the athletes and team leaders of the future! We want our children to be excited and driven by the competitive nature of sport at whatever level they are able to access, as well as being supportive of those around them, showing the utmost respect to those they compete with and against regardless of cultural background. We aim to provide all our children with as many additional experiences as possible, allowing them to make their own choices in the future regarding the physical activities they may wish to pursue and enjoy.
Regardless of Key Stage, within each lesson, we strive to give every child the opportunity to develop skills in PE, consider the impact on their health and fitness, compete/perform and evaluate.
These key PE skills and concepts are:
Our pupils leave Codnor Primary School with the knowledge to think, act and speak like a sportsperson, and they value the transference of these skills into their every day life, in education and beyond.
