Physical Education

Why do we teach PE?

At Dewhurst, we deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport, as well as physically-demanding activities. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We provide opportunities to compete in a variety of sports and other physical activities, which build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Aims:

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy and active lives
