“Physically educated persons are those who have learned to arrange their lives in such a way that the habitual physical activities they freely engage in make a distinctive contribution to their wider flourishing.”

Our PE Intent

We aim to provide a PE curriculum that pupils not only enjoy, but gives every child the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve both in PE and importantly – life. Our curriculum supports the development of pupil’s health, fitness and wellbeing, allowing children to excel in their knowledge and skills through our progressive and inclusive PE teaching.
At Overchurch, we recognise the importance of both fitness and physical development in the early stages of a child’s life. Our curriculum will place additional focus on pupil’s fundamental movement skills such as balancing, jogging, running, jumping, hopping, dodging, galloping and skipping and provide more opportunities for the development of object control skills such as bouncing, throwing, catching, kicking, striking. These skills, along with pupils’ gross motor development and health and fitness have been identified as key priorities for our young people.
Children in EYFS and KS1 will benefit from our weekly PE sessions, ensuring the above fundamental movements and skills are integrated on a daily basis. These lessons are not just about physical skills; they also allow young people to develop cognitive skills such as decision making and reflection, social and communication skills to allow pupils to navigate real-life situations and manage risk and a child’s personal developments such as self-esteem, respect and resilience.
