   PE at Intake Farm Primary


Through physical education, school sport and physical activity, we aim to promote healthy lifestyles, develop a love for physical activity, promote mental health and well-being and develop skills for life.





 Physical Education, Sport and Activity

 Physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress , and improves concentration, but promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability, and interaction with others. Therefore, at Intake Farm we aim to nurture a love and enjoyment for Physical Activity. We aim to provide a broad and balanced programme of physical education.

Our curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop physical literacy and the fundamental knowledge, understanding and skills to enjoy and excel in a wide range of physical activities. Activities are designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, and purposeful. Through providing positive experiences and a wide range of activities and skills we hope to foster a lifelong interest in physical activity. The range of physical activities is wide and includes, athletics, dance, football, golf, netball gymnastics and swimming.

Through physical activities, education and sport children learn to develop skills for life such as, fair play, respect, teamwork, perseverance, decision making and communication skills.
