PE, Sport and Swimming
It is our intent for the P.E. element of our school curriculum to progressively cover the requirements of the PE National Curriculum whilst providing enjoyable and engaging physical activities in each year group. In KS1, the focus of the PE curriculum is on the development of the fundamental skills that will be built upon in KS2 when they are applied in specific sports. At Briary we wish to encourage and develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and PE in all young people. We aim to help ensure a positive and healthy physical and mental outlook in the future and help young people to develop essential skills like leadership and teamwork. Within each lesson, we strive to give every child the opportunity to develop skills in PE, consider the impact on their health and fitness, compete/perform and evaluate. We also wish to provide each child at Briary with a range of opportunities to compete against their peers with meaningful and celebrated competitions, this is achieved through sporting competitions at Briary and also matches and tournaments against other schools. The competitive element of the schools PE curriculum helps children gain a sense of achievement, confidence and pride and teaches valuable life skills like teamwork, respect and resilience.
