Physical Education at Brading Primary School
At Brading we want PE to be the centre of every child’s school experience and have a positive impact on their academic, physical, social and emotional wellbeing and their health. We plan a wide range of sporting and physical activities to meet all needs during PE lessons, breaktimes and after school clubs for fun, enjoyment and if children want to, competition. Our aim is to raise the participation levels of sport and physical activity in school, at clubs out of school and throughout their life, promoting healthy lifestyles. Brading believe that all children can achieve and experience success within their own ability, not only physical and sport skills but confidence, creativity, resilience, motivation and team building skills. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality and broad and balanced PE and sport provision, with learning opportunities that can inspire children to succeed in physical activities now and in the future.
All children at Brading have access to 2 hours of high-quality Physical Education from Reception Class to Year 6. Our PE Curriculum provides a range of sports and activities to ensure we develop well balanced children. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular sports clubs and aim to give all KS2 children the opportunity to represent Brading in extra-curricular and competitive sport. This inclusive approach endeavours to encourage the curriculum to extend beyond the academic, into cultural capital, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, a positive mind set and a healthy lifestyle.
We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
