Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”



Physical Education Intent Statement


At Therfield First School we deliver a fun, high-quality, physical education curriculum that develops pupils’ health, fitness and wellbeing. Through carefully planned lessons, pupils learn progressive core skills and are provided with a range of opportunities to put these into practice. All pupils participate in festivals and competitive tournaments. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equality.


Through active lunchtimes, children have the opportunities to practise and improve physical skills taught in PE. The various pieces of apparatus encourage all children to improve their gross and fine motor skills in a fun and safe environment. 


Older pupils have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills by becoming Play leaders.
