At Oakley Infant School, learning in physical education is underpinned by our school vision, learning attributes, the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework. The children will experience a variety of physical and well being opportunities through PE lessons, break times and lunchtimes. In Year R, children also have access to their own outside space at any time throughout the day to enhance their physical development. From our curriculum, pupils will become physically educated through experiencing a range of activities that:
PE is an integral part of our curriculum, it is inclusive and engages all pupils by providing challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting opportunities.
Through our PE provision, our children will become enthusiastic learners who want to participate in a variety of sport and physical activity, both inside and outside of school. Children acquire the skills, knowledge and values to achieve their personal best and set personal challenges. Our children know how to work collaboratively and understand the importance and benefits of doing so. They will hopefully grow up to live happy, healthy and active lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
