PE is much more than success on the sports field. It develops competent, confident young people who understand the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle both in and outdoors. Foundation Stage: Physical Development in the Foundation Stage is encouraged through activities which provide children the opportunity to be active in their learning, helping them to develop good control and coordination in large and small movements. Children learn about the importance of good health and physical exercise.
They develop an awareness of a healthy diet and ways to keep healthy and safe. In addition to this the Foundation Stage have PE 4 times per week in the school hall as well as regular outdoor sessions in the school garden. Key Stage One: PE is timetabled 4 times per week (2- 2 ½ hrs all together), with opportunities for extracurricular activities developing these skills further.

Forest School blocks of learning allow children to build upon a further range of skills as well as developing a love for the outdoors and working together as a team.
