Physical Education

Physical Education is an integral part of our Curriculum that is inclusive and engages all pupils, in a supportive and challenging environment. We promote physical fitness, develop motor skills and encourage teamwork through fun and engaging activities.

Using iPEP we aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities which enable all children to succeed, enjoy their learning, to be resilient and consistently strive to give their best efforts at all times and achieve their potential and personal best.

Throughout the year children participate in competitive sport where they learn how to cooperate and collaborate effectively as part of a team and compete appropriately against others, adhering to the principles of fairness, sportsmanship and respect, values we hope to embed for future life.

Swimming is an important life skill and we aspire for all children to leave primary school being able to swim at least 25 metres.

At St Herbert’s we understand the importance physical activity has on children’s general health, fitness and mental well-being. We provide opportunities for all children to be physically active for sustained periods of time, and we teach children the importance of leading healthy, active lives and making informed and appropriate lifestyle choices.
