Vision for PE:

At Greenacres Primary School, we believe each child has the right to an outstanding Physical Education programme, providing the foundations for lifelong participation in physical activity and/or sport. We aim to develop and improve pupils’ attitudes towards both participation and competition through regularly timetabled PE lessons and extra-curricular activities.

We believe that the context of the school and known risk factors linked to this means we must ensure our children are prepared for the next step in their learning as well as future lives.  We believe it is our role to embrace not just the academic but to provide our children with strategies to support mental strength and wellbeing.  Exercise which supports character growth, resilience, confidence and risk taking within safe environements is to be encouraged.  In line with this, we also promote healthy lifestyles through our PSHE Curriculum and teach about balanced diets and making appropriate lifestyle choices within our Science Curriculum.

Aims for PE at Greenacres:
