Subject Intent

At Shenley, we recognise the value that a high quality PE curriculum can offer to our pupils. All pupils are entitled to receive high-quality lessons that inspire them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. As a school, we aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.

We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way, which supports their health and fitness. We want to provide opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed the school games values and our school core values.

Our PE curriculum aims to provide an engaging and challenging curriculum that allows (all) students to achieve beyond their expectations. To offer excellent opportunities to develop a healthy life-long love of physical activity and to develop a first class teaching and learning environment where both staff and students enjoy working hard together to achieve success.

We aim to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad & balanced curriculum with opportunities for all.

We encourage all our pupils to be active and engaged in our PE lessons to enable them to get the most out of their lessons and to inspire them to reach their potential. It is our intent to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We want all students to feel they belong as part of a team, believe in their healthy potential and become as physically, socially and emotionally well as they can be. We do this by developing the attitudes, skills and knowledge required and provide memorable experiences throughout a child’s journey within Physical Education.

We aim to ensure each child will:

  • Learn in a positive and safe environment
  • Meet their own individual needs
  • Have access to a diverse range of sports and dance subjects
  • Be supported by positive and professional role models/teachers/coaches
  • Be involved in an all-inclusive environment
  • Be provided with moderate to vigorous actively levels with PE lessons in line with government recommended targets
  • Have the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular sports.
