Physical Education

At Abbots Green, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation who enjoy physical activity, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development, along with mental well-being.  We offer a varied program of activity to ensure that all children progress physically, through an engaging PE curriculum. We encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely, yet imaginatively, to achieve their personal goals. All children have the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and, through sport, increase their self-esteem. Children are encouraged to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience. The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught about fair play and good sporting behaviour as individual participants and team members which embeds life-long values such as co-operation and collaboration. At Abbots Green we aim for children to develop the necessary knowledge and skills which will have a positive impact on their future by becoming physically active citizens to benefit their long-term health and well-being.
