"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."

John F. Kennedy


At Hinguar Primary School and Nursery the intent 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. We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices.

PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. Within dance it will allow children to explore their personal and spiritual identity. Children are at the forefront and have direct impact on their learning within lessons and through pupil voice.

At Hinguar Primary School and Nursery we share the National Curriculum aims for physical education to ensure that all pupils:

•develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

•are physically active for sustained periods of time

•engage in competitive sports and activities

•lead healthy, active lives

As a coastal school, we have strong commitment to developing children’s water safety and swimming ability to ensure children know how to remain safe in and around water.
