Our PE Rationale
Physical Education at Shakespeare Primary School
Our focus at Shakespeare Primary School is to raise the levels of good health and wellbeing of all our pupils. Therefore we provide a broad and deep curriculum, which creates a sense of respect for our minds and bodies and helps all of our pupils to experience success in physical activity and set themselves challenging goals.
We aim for our pupils to develop a progressive range of skills through their PE lessons, building fundamental skills in agility, balance and co-ordination from Nursery through to Year 6. Alongside this, personal, social, cognitive and creative skills are embedded within the lessons to develop positive learning behaviours, healthy competition and encourage a life-long participation with sports. For pupils to have a broad experience of sports and skills, we have built partnerships with various organisations, such as Plymouth School Sport Partnership (PSSP), Plymouth Argyle, YMCA, Plymouth Life Centre, Horizon Sailing and Premier Education.
