Physical Education

At Thorndown Primary School we understand the importance of PE not just for children’s physical development, but also their hollistic development. Through our PE curriculum, we aim to develop a positive attitude and enjoyment of Physical Education and a solid understanding of how exercise is vital to healthy lifestyles. Through active, varied and inclusive sessions we ensure that all children understand why it is important to stay healthy and exercise and have an opportunity to develop and celebrate their developing skills.

As children progress through the school, their understanding of the Olympic and Paralympic values of Friendship, Respect, Excellence, Determination and Resilience, Inspiration, Courage and Equality, is developed. By the time they reach Year 6, the children will have a firm knowledge of not only what each of these values stand for, but also how they can be used to enhance their learning across school.

As well as a highly inclusive PE curriculum, we aim to provide a wide range of extra-curricular sporting activities, that give all children who are interested to partake in regular exercise and often friendly competition.
