Physical Education

Physical Education (PE) at Beaufort Primary School is a valued and integral part of the school curriculum. Vital skills such as communication and team work are significantly enhanced through positive and successful participation in PE. Every child should feel that PE is a chance for them to shine in a non-academic subject, but with no lesser value placed upon their success. PE also serves as a vital tool in developing children’s language skills, as children are able to link vocabulary to movements and actions. All children have the opportunity to experience a wide range of sporting experiences at Beaufort, in both a competitive and fun way, either in school or at after school clubs. Provision is made so that all children are able to participate actively in PE and at a level that is appropriate to their ability. Teaching is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, with all staff being confident and secure in the skills they are teaching. Many of the staff teaching PE are qualified Sports Coaches and we recently used our Sports Premium funding to train all staff in the teaching of Gymnastics. PE is taught in a progressive and developmental way, building on prior knowledge and skills in order to provide a positive learning experience.
