PE at Poppleton Road Primary School
PE is an essential part of a child’s development. Physical education can build self-esteem, develop physical literacy, encourage communication skills and promote a healthy lifestyle. Through lesson time, specialist coaching and a wide range of clubs provided we aim to inspire children and give them opportunities to try and compete in different sports. We aim to embed a love of sports and a good understanding of healthy lifestyle through PE which the children will take with them when they leave the school.
The National Curriculum states that PE ‘should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.’ At Poppleton Road Primary School we follow the aims set out by the National Curriculum and ensure that children encounter a wide variety of exciting and inclusive sports.
The Government’s Sports Premium Grant was funded initially for a two year period from 2013. It is designed to raise the profile of sports and healthy lifestyles for pupils, creating a legacy in schools. More now than ever, it is essential that we use this funding to provide pupils at Poppleton Road Primary School with the tools to lead an active healthy life style.
