Intent Statement for PE
Laburnum Primary School is committed to meeting every requirement of P.E within the primary National Curriculum.
The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners. Our curriculum will be exciting and will inspire children to nurture a passion for learning.
The main purposes of P.E. within the National Curriculum is to develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.
The rationale behind this is that learning through health and wellbeing enables children and young people to:
make informed decisions in order to improve their mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
experience challenge and enjoyment
experience positive aspects of healthy living and activity for themselves
apply their mental, emotional and social skills to pursue a healthy lifestyle
establish a pattern of health and wellbeing which will be sustained into adult life, and which will help to promote their health and wellbeing.
