At Ivy Chimneys Primary School we are passionate about Physical Education (P.E) and recognise the positive impact this has upon the mental health and the physical and emotional wellbeing of our children. We fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:
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
P.E. at Ivy Chimneys Primary School is taught as discrete lessons, as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas.
We teach lessons so that children:
experience fun and success in sport
have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development
secure and build on a range of skills
develop good sporting attitudes
understand basic rules
experience positive competition
learn in a safe environment
have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.
Children here have access to a wide range of activities to support their health and fitness, including opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that help build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.
Through our sequences of lessons, numerous sports clubs, competitive sport and frequent visitors, we ensure that children have an enormous range of opportunities to develop their enjoyment and foster talent.
