Physical Education Curriculum Statement of Intent
At Boreham Primary School it is our aim to ensure that all children lead happy, healthy and active lifestyles that contribute to a sense of achievement and wellbeing. We believe that PE in school has benefits that stretch far beyond the physical. Through sport children are able to overcome challenges, be inspired by others, develop positive relationships, have a positive body image, develop sportsmanship and teamwork and improve learning achievements and resilience. This is supported by our school’s values (based upon the Olympic and Paralympic values): respect, excellence, friendship, determination, courage, equality, inspiration. Through PE we also aim to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Boreham School is mindful of these requirements and teachers plan to include these principles across the PE curriculum as relevant to the age and stage of the pupils and appropriate curriculum content.
