Physical Education

Here at Broughton, Physical Education, Physical Activity and Competitive sport are integral parts of a child’s education. We strive to support excellence in PE through promoting healthy and active lifestyles, engaging in competitive activities and developing a love for physical education. We deliver high quality teaching, with specialist teachers and external bodies to ensure that all aspects of the PE curriculum are being delivered to the highest quality. We offer a balanced program, one that focuses on the development of the fundamental movement skills that children need in life. Children are able to access a variety of sports within school, thus providing them with an opportunity to express themselves and develop their own unique skills in their chosen sport. Individuality is something that we celebrate here at Broughton, as every child is different, and children are offered the chance to display their talents through sport. Children can also build self-esteem, develop team work and friendships and have a positive attitude towards PE, also providing the opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle. Healthy children will develop into healthy adults, so we certainly are shaping the future and it is paramount that children see an active healthy lifestyle of importance in their adolescence and beyond.
