A high quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
At Key Stage 1, pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident, and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and co-ordination, both individually and with others.
At Key Stage 2, pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.
