What Physical Education at Blenheim looks like

Our PE Vision Statement
We at Blenheim Primary school believe that physical education is an essential part of a child’s educational development. Salisbury Road aims to develop a balanced program offering a variety of activities to enhance skills in physical education. Positive participation in physical education will enable children to build, self-esteem, team work and positive attitudes in P.E. Blenheim Primary School aims are to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport.
Through good physical education, whole school values and whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best with energy, creativity and a never give up attitude. We listen to our children’s wants and needs and provide them with a range of active learning opportunities before, during and after school. We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others as well as modesty celebrating their own successes, therefore they are also able to show respect, consideration and sensitivity to the belief of others.
At Blenheim, our aim is to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mind-set to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school, then leading into lifelong sporting participation.
Physical Education begins when pupils start in our Early Years Foundation Stage and are encouraged to develop their Physical Development through planned continuous provision activities and specific programmes which support and develop their fine and gross motor skills. Pupils develop core strength, co-ordination and balance to enable them to reach the Early Learning Goal.
The National Curriculum is used to support Physical Education throughout Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Pupils in Key Stage One are encouraged to continually develop fundamental movement skills and become increasingly competent and confident in a broad range of sports and activities. Pupils in Key Stage Two are encouraged to continually apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and link them to actions and sequence of movement. Pupils are taught how to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.
We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices in a harmonious working environment, treating others how we expect them to treat us. Through their learning in health and physical education, students will develop a positive and responsible attitude to their own physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children’s well-being to enable independent decision making to aim high and be the best they can be.
