 PE Vision Statement

At Linton Mead we believe that physical education (PE) and sport have a vital role in developing a child in preparation for a successful and happy life. We believe that PE helps to increase a child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Physical education and sport are important in giving a child the knowledge, understanding and the tools to make a positive impact on their own health and well-being. We aim to develop a broad, rich and engaging curriculum offering a variety of high quality activities to enhance a child’s knowledge and skills in PE. Positive and inclusive participation in physical education will also enable a child to build upon self-esteem, team work, resilience, as well as positive values and attitudes in PE and across the curriculum.

 

PE at Linton Mead

In PE we teach the children transferable skills to fill the requirements of the national curriculum through a number different sporting activities. Throughout a child’s time at Linton Mead, the children will have the opportunity to experience many sports.

Below is our yearly overview, where you can find out what PE your child will be participating in at Linton Mead, to learn and develop the vital skills within PE. 

 Wider Opportunities

As well as teaching the children the vital physical skills, we expose the children to the values of sportsmanship and leadership skills. Children will have the opportunity to take part in competitive sport through intra house competitions which are held at the end of each unit and sports day. Some children will also have the opportunity to represent the school in inter-house competitions and matches with other local schools. Throughout a school year, the children will also have the opportunity to engage with visitors to develop their skills and knowledge. These experiences include: taking part in Bikeability, meeting athletes and being able to ask them questions, engaging in leadership schemes of work etc.
