In Physical Education, at Bilbrook CE Middle, we intend to create an environment where the students are participating in high quality enjoyable physical education lesson developing and challenging their skills by taking part in a variety of different sporting activities. It is important the students understand the lifelong benefits of staying physically fit and active as well as have the knowledge of sustain a healthy active life style.
Children are given opportunities to work both independently and as part of a team when tackling Physical Education tasks building resilience in the face of adversity. Children are regularly challenged individually and as a class given the opportunities to work on tasks which require them to apply their knowledge, reasoning and problem-solving skills.
The implementation of Physical Education at Bilbrook CE Middle follows the National Curriculum and the intention is that all students have a quality experience developing their physical skills and knowledge of a variety of sporting activities. We strive to improve and maintain the physical fitness of each student in a fun and creative way. The sporting activities include: Invasion games, ball and racket, Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Outdoor Education and Swimming.
The impact is that children leave Bilbrook CE Middle as confident and enthusiastic children with the knowledge and skills required for the next stage of their education, and indeed, life.
