'A high quality physical education 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 embed values such as fairness and respect'. (Statutory Guidance 2013)
At Netherseal St. Peter's, we understand and value the benefits of PE and aim to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical Education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and encourages positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle, enabling them to make informed choices about health and physical activity throughout their lives.
Through well-planned, high quality PE and sports teaching, both in the curriculum and as part of extracurricular provision, we seek to ensure that all children show resilience and have the self esteem to succeed. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim and teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
All children and staff should wear suitable clothing for PE activities.
Plain blue school T-shirt
Plain navy shorts (no 'skorts')

We recognise that we have children of differing abilities within our classes. Discussions between staff, parents, pupils, coaches and SENCo may take place to help pupils with SEND to overcome potential barriers to learning in physical education. Some pupils may require adapted, modified or alternative activities that offer an equivalent degree of challenge and careful management of their physical regime to allow for their specific conditions.
