PE (Physical Education)

At Northside Primary School, Physical Education (PE) is about delivering high-quality teaching and learning opportunities which develops the children’s PE skills as well as enhancing the fitness and good health of all pupils. We believe that teaching lessons in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment will strengthen the children’s knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing. This will inspire children to succeed and develop abilities which will positively impact on their future. Our aim is for all children to have a keen interest in PE, a willingness to participate in all lessons, have a positive attitude towards learning and to employ imagination and creativity in their techniques whether it be tactics or choreography.  Learning is strengthened through a collection of physical activities and is differentiated to support the needs of every child. Children will co-operate and collaborate with each other as part of an effective team; understanding fairness and embedding life-long values that PE promotes.
