At Horton Kirby Church of England Primary School we believe that Physical Education (PE) is essential to develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities. We give the pupils the opportunity to be physically active for sustained periods of time. Engagement in competitive sports and activities allows our pupils the chance to develop the skills they have learnt. Through PE, well-being and science pupils are made aware of the importance of leading healthy, active lives. While they are at the school they will have access to many opportunities to find their sport and represent their school in a wide range of competitions.
The main aim for PE in our school is to educate the pupils in the knowledge of the body and physical activities, the skill to use their body efficiently and effectively and the understanding of how their body moves. We look to develop teamwork, fair play and self-esteem. These are crucial skills which transfer from the sports pitch into everyday life, developing the whole child.
