PE at Quinton Church Primary School
At Quinton Church Primary we believe that Physical Education (PE) is an essential part of a child’s education. It provides children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability, and interaction with others. Therefore, both teachers and children should be aware of its importance.
PE develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. We provide a broad and balanced programme of physical education we believe every child should have; with activities designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, and purposeful. Through providing positive experiences, a lifelong interest in physical activity is encouraged, as well as promoting positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle.
PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities The range of physical activities is wide and includes; athletics, dance, games, gymnastics, outdoor education and swimming. A high-quality programme is designed to satisfy the needs, abilities and interests of all individual children.
