Physical Education at Larkholme Primary School aims to develop our children holistically. By combining the teaching of physical activity, physical literacy and personal characteristics we aim to equip our children with the skills they need to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
Our school values of respect, responsibility and resilience underpin the teaching within PE through the development of personal characteristics. Within Physical Education we meet the requirements of the National Curriculum by developing our children’s fundamental movement skills from the start of their school experience and build on these skills throughout their school journey, linking them to a variety of sports and exposing our children to new skills that are transferable from sport to sport. This then equips our children with the skills they need to excel in their future education and careers. Furthermore, we aim to deliver a PE curriculum that develops healthy minds and encourages children to find a good state of mental health and mindfulness.
