Physical Education

Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We listen to our children wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs. We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes. We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond. We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being. We have strong links with local clubs and partnerships within our community to ensure the children and families receive the support and knowledge they need.

At SBSP, our PE lessons follow a scheme of learning called Get Set 4 PE (GS4PE). We aim to instil a positive attitude towards PE and physical activity and believe GS4PE provides the platform to achieve this. The core value of GS4PE is to give every child the physical literacy, emotional and creative thinking skills to achieve in PE and sport, and across the curriculum.

GS4PE is aligned to the National Curriculum and focuses on the development of the three fundamental movement skills of a child’s development: agilitybalance and coordination. It allows for the progression of skills to be practiced before applying to traditional and non-traditional games and encourages healthy competition and cooperative learning through an inclusive approach to teaching PE.

GS4PE has a multi-ability focus and allows children to:

  • explore and create their own games
  • develop cognitive skills
  • understand the benefits of health and fitness.
  • engage in physical activity
  • work as a team

We are also delighted that the school has maintained the GOLD Schools Game Mark for 2022/23.
