Physical Education (PE) at Parkhill Junior School
We aim to encourage a lifetime love of sport and keeping fit to lead healthy, active lives. Our PE aspires to develop confidence, resilience, passion, respect and determination. It helps to improve their mental health and cognitive development as a result they will be more likely to concentrate and maintain focus in lessons. All children are given the opportunity to compete in sport and other demanding activities to build their character and talents (RRS article 29) in order to excel in a broad range of physical activities as well as help embed values such as respect and fairness. Not only does PE improve a child’s sporting skills but also it develops their communication, teamwork, leadership, creativity and problem-solving skills within a classroom setting as well as preparing them to be young global citizens.
Enjoy Learning and staying active!
