At Tottington Primary School, we believe a high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The purpose of teaching Physical Education is to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. Children who experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills will find it enhances life-long fitness, life choices and career opportunities. PE challenges and promotes self-esteem through the development of physical confidence, resilience, perseverance and a positive mindset. It teaches children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities.
