Physical Education

At Horsell Junior our Physical Education curriculum is focused on creating children who will lead life long active lifestyles. We achieve this by delivering Physical Education in the following ways:

  • High quality PE lessons are taught which are inclusive and give all children the confidence to develop their physical literacy across a range of sports and activities. Assessment and self-assessment will help pupils improve,
  • Making physical activity implicit in all school life outside of specific PE lessons. This well-being will benefit subjects across the curriculum. This is will help reach government targets of thirty minutes activity a day.
  • Opportunities to compete in a variety of levels including class, intra-school and inter-school.
  • Celebrate achievement and give opportunities for pupils to achieve their personal best.
  • Give opportunities for children to spend time outside. To develop teamwork skills, both in sport and in adventurous settings.
  •  To develop leadership skills in our pupils, by giving them opportunities to organise and lead physical activity in a variety of settings.
  • Children will learn to enjoy physical activity and develop an understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle. They will learn how this can be maintained through active choices and healthy eating.
  • To offer a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities which are inclusive and encourage children from across the school to be active.
  • Use PE to help build self-esteem and a culture of respect between all members of the school.
  • To share success within the school and across the community. This will strengthen between the school and other institutions in wider area.

Horsell Junior School has a dedicated Sports Coach, Mr Coles, who is a full-time member of staff.  Class teachers also teach PE during the week.
