Physical Education at Beaufront County First School
At Beaufront Front School, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Physical Education within our curriculum. It is our intention to develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and PE in all pupils. Physical Education contributes to our health and emotional well-being, which supports and facilitates our academic and social development. We believe that we help to develop essential skills like leadership and teamwork throughout our PE curriculum. Throughout the delivery of our PE lessons we ensure that learning is as tailored and inclusive as possible.

The Six Cogs of Real PE:
Personal – Developing our children’s ability to strive for personal excellence in all that they do. Try to be the best versions of themselves, constantly trying to develop and improve.
Social – Developing the ability to work effectively with others. Cooperating with, leading and motivating others to improve their performances.
Physical – Developing the ability to confidently perform a variety of skills across a range of sporting situations.
Cognitive – Developing thinking skills. Learning to analyse both our own and others’ performances. Learning how to outwit opponents and explaining why ideas and tactics work or don’t work.
Creative – Developing our ability to be expressive through physical activity. How can we adapt and adjust our tactics? How can we effectively link movements to perform sequences?
Health and Fitness – Developing an understanding of the benefits of health and exercise and encouraging our children to develop positive, life-long habits.
