Physical Education

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. (National Curriculum, 2014)

At Foxdell we aim to inspire all children to succeed in a broad range of physical activities. The PE curriculum is planned covering the skills and knowledge/content themes from the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2 and the EYFS for the Foundation Stage. 

All activities planned, develop the skills and control that they need to take part in PE and sport, including competitive sport and embed values such as fairness and respect. We ensure that children are physically active for sustained periods of time leading to an understanding of the importance of exercise and a love of sports. We endeavor to help the children understand that PE and sport are an important part of an active lifestyle needed for a balanced and healthy future.


Healthy Living Week 2024

This week we have immersed ourselves in Healthy Living Week. We launched the week with an assembly to introduce what healthy living is and why it is important for us to maintain our own health. 


Throughout week our foundation lessons have been focused on our physical, emotional and mental health. We have studied the changes in health through time in aspects such as how we brush our teeth and by measuring our pulse rate. We have taken part in mindfulness to help calm our minds. 


We have completed healthy living art projects and are very proud of our results. We have had some amazing whole school events and Mr Blunt hosted our very own Mini Olympics! Children competed in a range of events from running races, throwing events and jumping events.
