P.E and Sport Mission Statement

At Beighton Nursery and Infant School we ran a whole school competition to develop a P.E Mission statement that as a school we strive to achieve together. Orange Class provided us with the winning statement of – ‘Keep fit, Keep focussed, Keep Healthy!’ We believe in providing our children with the necessary skills to achieve our Mission Statement and to access a broad and balanced curriculum that excites, stimulates and is tailored to meet the needs of all our children.

Physical Education provides children with many skills that they can transfer to all aspects of their education and life. As a school we will be working with our children to recognise the importance of staying healthy, team work, self-discipline, and independence and to support them in recognising their own strengths.

 P.E Curriculum

Within school we offer a varied and exciting curriculum, focused on developing key skills within Gymnastics, Ball Skills, Dance and Athletics. Every child has the opportunity to enjoy, learn and progress their skills throughout the year and across EYFS and KS1. 

Here are a few statements from our current pupils throughout Reception, Year 1 and Year 2:

Rec: "I like to do lots of running and jumping in PE" "PE makes me happy"

Y1: "I like PE because I get exercise and it makes us all fit" "PE gives me energy" "We get to do fun things"

Y2: "I like PE because it makes my heart beat really fast" "PE is fun and I get to learn new things and improve" "I feel proud of myself when I am a resilient Rex in PE"

Make sure to look at your child's class blog page as there will be different PE challenges set throughout the year.

 Active Children are Happier Children

At Beighton we believe that an active school is a successful school and that active children are happier children. Following the DfE Obesity Strategy improvement plan, we have increased the amount of physical activity that every child in school partakes in, to an additional 30 minutes a day within school hours, which is supplementary to the 2 hours of curriculum PE per week.

Physical activity can help to increase the children’s concentration levels, social skills and emotional wellbeing. Therefore it is really important that we encourage children to be active both within and outside of school. To achieve this, we teach more active lessons, take part in the daily mile, use our Forest School area, have active physical activities in our classrooms and offer a wide selection of lunch time activities. 

We offer a broad range of exciting and fun extra-curricular sports clubs and make sure that all children have the opportunity to participate in active physical activities and games during their break and lunchtime.

Children are given the opportunity to take part in festivals and competitions through POINTs Learning Network and other Family of Schools events. 

 The DfE also advise that children take part in an additional 30 minutes a day of physical activity outside of school in order to help them to become healthier and to prevent obesity.

2019/20 Competitions Calendar

Within our family of schools, there are plenty of opportunities for our children to compete in different sports competitions. Participating in competitions is extremely beneficial as it provides children with the opportunities to develop their teamwork and social skills, as well as developing an array of PE skills. We will also have a School Sports Day and take part in other special events, such as the Sports Relief Mile.
