Our intent:

At South End Junior, we believe that Physical Education is vital to promote a healthy lifestyle and must be enjoyable. Active children are healthier both in body and mind therefore we strive for all children to have 60 active minutes a day to boost their social, emotional and mental health. At school and within the local community, children will learn fundamental skills and vocabulary alongside a broad variety of competitive sports within their broad and balanced PE curriculum.

Children will learn how to play individual and team sports to develop their understanding of tolerance and motivating others. All children will have the opportunity to represent their school throughout their time with us. They will learn how to support and appreciate each other whilst celebrating all successes, regardless of any barriers. A growth mindset and self-motivation are encouraged, helping to prepare children for tomorrow’s world. Key life skills are taught, including how to swim at least 25m, alongside water safety to prepare children for their future.
