Our aim at Holland Junior School is that all pupils leave physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and life- long participation in physical activity and sports.

The National curriculum for Physical Education states:

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Our essential learning objectives for Physical Education at Holland Junior School are to enable children:

  • To experience and enjoy a wide range of experiences within physical education and sport.
  • To develop enthusiasm, positive attitudes and practical skills in order to participate, compete and lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

During our physical education lessons children will follow personal learning journeys based on a 'FUNdamental' skills, and multi-ability approach to teaching and learning.  This curriculum equips children with the essential abilities to maximize potential, and enjoy long-term participation in physical activity and sport.  Teaching and learning focuses on three main building blocks for every sporting action, these are known as ‘FUNdamental’ skills: Agility, Balance and Coordination.

The curriculum encourages creativity, collaboration and self-challenge, through six themed units per year, known as ‘multi-abilities’ which include: personal skills, social skills, cognitive skills, creative skills, physical skills and health related fitness.
