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!

PE Vision
Every child should be confident, enjoy and participate in a range of sports actively with increasing competitive aspects by the end of Year 6. In the future, the aim will be to provide some competitive team matches against other schools (RRS articles 3, 15, 28, 29, 30 & 31).

  • Every child should be respected relative to our own natural abilities and stimulated to reach our full potential given our social, physical, mental and economic parameters (RRS article 29).
  • Continue to discover new barriers to learning about our physical capabilities and challenge ourselves in a competitive but friendly environment where we all progress together (RRS articles 3 and 30).
  • Our vision is for everyone to be confident, independent and motivated towards an enriched healthy lifestyle and to be actively participating in sport (RRS articles 15 and 31).
Healthy Opportunities

We have a wide range of opportunities for children to stay active here at Parkhill Junior School. At lunchtimes, they have a variety of energetic activities to choose from including: tennis, basketball, table tennis, cricket, badminton, football, a climbing frame and an outdoor gym. At the start of this term we also sent out a fitness letter that explains what we do at Parkhill to promote a healthy and active environment (Please attach the fitness letter onto this).  

PE quotes during lockdown

At Parkhill Junior School, we have been staying active, keeping fit and showing resilience by completing the Parkhill Mile! Here are some quotes from pupils during lockdown:  

‘I have enjoyed running the Parkhill Mile to beat my previous laps and challenge myself (even though I found it tough!). It is good to do the Parkhill Mile because it keeps me fit and healthy.’

Written by Zakariyya – Year 4

‘I like doing the Parkhill Mile as it keeps me fit and healthy however, I do get very tired afterwards!’

Written by Imani – Year 6
