Physical Education Policy


Bloxham C of E Primary School believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self- confidence, through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.

A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. Planning is based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils.

We aim to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through a balanced range of relevant activities.

Physical education is considered a vehicle to facilitate access to cross-curricular themes, skills and dimensions, rather than a subject concerned exclusively with the acquisition of motor skills and techniques.


Bloxham C of E Primary School aims for children to be educated, experience, understand, apply and evaluate knowledge and skills in three areas; Physical Education, Healthy Lifestyles and Competitive Sport.


Bloxham C of E Primary School aims to ensure that children:

· 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, active lives.
