P.E Curriculum Impact
The P.E curriculum is developed in a way to help children develop their skills and confidence to enable them to have a positive attitude, along with a healthy, active lifestyle. They learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their aptitudes, abilities, preferences and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity. Often end of topic performances or competitive events will be held to celebrate and measure their performance and success.
We measure and celebrate the impact of P.E via the following strategies;
