Bushy Hill Junior School

Physical Education

At Bushy Hill we value the importance of developing and enhancing the children’s fundamental skills in varied inclusive activities, whilst also providing opportunities in traditional competitive sports. Our child-centred approach is instrumental to how we teach PE; to engage, support and challenge EVERY child. We encourage leadership and independence, which allows all abilities to participate at their own level. As a result children at BHJS receive two different weekly sessions of physical activity. One to learn the skills through sport and invasion games, such as Athletics, Cricket and Rugby. The second is a dedicated session to developing fundamental physical and cognitive skills (REAL PE). 

 

On leaving Bushy Hill a successful learner of this subject will:

  • Be confident participating in a range of physical activities whether as an individual or part of a team;
  • Engage in competitive and cooperative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations;
  • Communicate, collaborate take responsibility and ownership for their development of  fundamental movement skills to help them access a broad range of opportunities which will gradually extend their agility, balance and coordination;
