Physical Education at St Edmunds aspires to offer a rich, varied and inclusive curriculum that both, meets the expectations of the National Curriculum, and provides high quality opportunities for all pupils to undertake a wide range of physical activities, which may not be available in the wider community. Our pupils’ personal development is at the heart of everything we do: We are helping to develop a culture across school, which improves academic achievement and the overall health and well being of our pupils, whilst enabling them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Through the development of pupils’ skills, physical movement and knowledge of sport, we hope to: build resilience and independence; embed values such as teamwork and respect; develop communication and leadership skills.

Agility, balance, coordination. KS1 have been doing gymnastics in their PE lessons this half term. KS1 have developed fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and
confident whilst also accessing a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.
UKS2 started the theme of 'Aim, Strike, Retrieve' by throwing and catching through different ball games. Children then focused on how body shape and hand positions can effect catching. Children worked collaboratively to play competitive games whilst applying the skills they had been taught.
