At Fleet Primary School, we believe that physical activity is an integral part of a child's education. We intend to foster a love for physical activity through high quality teaching and an integrated whole school approach. We encourage our children to lead healthy, active lives by making explicit links between physical health and mental health.

    We believe that physical confidence and enjoyment are at the heart of making progress and we work hard to ensure that all our pupils are able to participate safely, effectively and feel success. We understand that every child is different and tailor activities to their needs by planning and implementing inclusive lessons which challenge every pupil. Through focusing on participation over competition, we create an unintimidating space where every child can thrive.

    Our PE curriculum aims to provide pupils with the necessary understanding and skills to take part in a wide range of physical activities. Focusing on the skills, rather than the sport, gives children a solid foundation and equips them to play any sport in the future.

    Our pupils are given responsibility and ownership for their learning and are taught the importance of communicating effectively, playing fairly and supporting and encouraging one another. They are taught the importance of individual and collaborative success.
