PE and Sport

Subject Intent

Physical education develops children’s physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to perform in a wide range of physical activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops in children, both as individuals and in groups and teams, confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation.  These, together with the development of positive values and attitudes in PE, are the basis for children’s lifelong and life-wide learning to face the challenges of the 21st Century.


The three main categories of fundamental movement are: Agility, Balance and Coordination. Our curriculum endorses creativity, collaboration and effort whilst simultaneously promoting the physical and social development of each and every child in group, partnered and paired learning.


Physical education at Bakewell inspires children to realise their full potential in sport, ensuring that children of all abilities access physical activity and sustain healthy, active lives.


Every pupil knows they are a member of a team, believe in their ability and potential and become as physically, socially and emotionally fit as they can be.


Pupils embrace these skills and transfer them across the curriculum as well as instilling determination and resilience within school, the community and the wider world.
