Aims of PE and OOHL


The aims of PE are:

 To enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination;

  • To encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations;
  • To develop the way children perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities;
  • To increase children’s ability to use what they have learnt to improve the quality and control of their performance;
  • To teach children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise;
  • To develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination;
  • To develop an understanding in children of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own success.Out of hours learning takes place at before school, break times, lunchtimes and after school. A variety of opportunities are provided to suit children of different ages, gender and cultures, providing a fair and equal opportunity for all of the children. Children are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of teams for enjoyment and competition. As a school, we also provide the opportunity for children to participate in a variety of non-sporting clubs.
