Physical Education

Welcome to the Physical Education page at Furness Primary School. Our aim is to develop the full potential of every single child in our school. Our students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of sporting opportunities, which will improve thinking, as well as social and emotional changes, as part of the new national curriculum which is at the heart of each discipline and underpin the study of the subject. We identify what learners need to absorb to further improve their knowledge, skills and understanding in the subject.

Developing a broad range of skills in PE, making and applying decisions, developing physical and mental capabilities, evaluating and improving and making informed choices about healthy active lifestyles are the essential skills and processes that students need to learn to make progress in the subject, and this is recognized not only within the subject, but also fits with the ethos of the whole school.

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.
