Physical Education

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

Michael Jordan 


Why is it important to learn PE?

PE develops the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical well being in our children – now and for the future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful, you must: work hard; show resilience; and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.

What does PE look like at Golcar JI&N School?

It is our intent at Golcar J.I&N School to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed  in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, and develop an understanding of fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. In EYFS, our children take part in PE lessons and outdoor provision activities to develop their moving and handling physical development, appropriate for their age. In K.S 1 and K.S 2, all children partake in two PE sessions in a week and over the year, they will be taught: Dance, Gymnastics, Athletics, OAA (Outdoor And Adventures), Team Sports and Striking and Fielding, covering a range of skills stated in our PE assessment criteria. Teacher assessment through observations, photographs and recordings help identity children’s progress.
