Our Approach

The new curriculum framework, developed by the staff team, embodies the agreed key elements and lies at the heart of physical education teaching within Inglehurst Junior School.

The aims of each pathway are clearly outlined and stage related expectations have been set that are both demanding and progressive. The programme is a progressive skills based approach to teaching P.E. that revisits prior learning to consolidate past learning and build on what the children can already do.

All children are encouraged to have resilience and confidence and to demonstrate fairness and respect in competitive and physically demanding activities. Children are given the opportunity to experience a wide range of sport inside and outside of school and to know how being healthy and fit benefits their mental and physical growth.
