Physical Education Curriculum
2021 - 2022
Our sporting vision for Bramley Sunnyside Junior School is to increase and inspire the participation of all children in PE and sports and to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle. ‘Sport for all’ will contribute to creating a safe and nurturing environment which allows children to learn, excel and achieve. All children are entitled to benefit from high quality PE provision and there is significant evidence to show that this supports other learning across the curriculum. It also contributes to healthy and active lifestyles, improves emotional well-being, reduces poor behaviour, increases attendance and develops key skills such as leadership, confidence, social and team building skills.
Our sport for all approach will provide opportunities for our children to become confident and physically literate, supporting their health and fitness. Promoting competitive sport for all children will gain and embed values such as fairness, respect and perseverance, developing essential future life skills, enabling happy children to achieve outstanding outcomes.
Sport funding will enable school to make sustainable changes by employing coaches and sporting professionals to help children to excel in a broad range of physical activities. Therefore all children will have the ability and confidence to be physically active for sustainable periods of time and all staff able to enthuse, motivate and inspire them to achieve their very best. High quality PE curriculum will develop physical literacy and will allow children to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. It also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision making and analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication.
