The intent of Brookmans Park Primary’s Physical Education curriculum is to inspire and encourage all children to succeed and excel in sport and other physical activities, both competitively and for personal enjoyment. Physical Education at Brookmans Park will provide the opportunity for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and mental wellbeing. Opportunities to take part in sport, both competitive and non-competitive, will be offered to all children in order to build character and embed values such as teamwork, fairness, respect and understanding.
Through Physical Education, we aim to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing confidence and competence in a range of physical activities. We aim to promote active participation and a lifelong love for physical activity as well as a clear understanding of the importance of physical activity on their health and wellbeing.
Our intention is to ensure all children are given the opportunity to sample a wide and varied range of sports and activities aimed to raise their enjoyment and enthusiasm for physical activity.

Pupils in KS1 children are given opportunities to develop their fundamental movement skills and extend agility, balance and coordination. They engage in competitive and cooperative physical activities through games, dance and gymnastics.
Pupils in KS2 continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching. These skills are incorporated into competitive games, performance using movement pattern and evaluations of their own and others work. Pupils communicate and collaborate with each other and develop an understanding of how to improve in physical activities. There are many opportunities across the year for the children to take part in inter and intra school competitions where their successes in sports are celebrated.
