Physical Education (PE)
If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.
At Lenthall Infant and Nursery School, we aim to deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum, which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.
These areas of the curriculum develop an understanding in children of their bodies in action and promote positive attitudes toward health and well-being. This enables children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives. Opportunities to compete in sports and other activities also contribute to the building of character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Physical education makes every child stronger and every life longer.
The U.K. Government says:
Playing sports helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sports at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.
Through our curriculum delivery of P.E., we aim to:
- To make PE and sports enjoyable and accessible for all children
- To embed the physical literacy, emotional, and thinking skills needed to succeed in PE and sports, with its benefits across the whole curriculum
- To improve standards of achievement in PE and sport
- To promote physical exercise and healthy lifestyle choices.
Working in Partnership with Qualitas Sport
To support and enhance the delivery of our P.E. and sports curriculum we have been working in partnership with Qualitas Sport. This has enabled us to access inter-school competitions, and CPD, and to work alongside sports specialists.
We are also lucky enough to have our own sports specialist coach, Mr. Modest, who visits our school weekly and is very popular amongst our children. Their passion for enjoying P.E. and sport is certainly exuding through the year groups he has worked with.

5 Key Indicators for effective use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding:
Schools are expected to see an impact of the primary school sport funding on pupils’ lifestyles and physical well-being, and at Lenthall Infant and Nursery School, we expect to see an improvement against the following key indicators:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
- The profile of PE and sports is being raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
- Increased confidence, knowledge, and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sports.
- A broader experience of a range of sports and activities being offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sports.
At Lenthall Infant and Nursery School, our vision for the PE and Sport Premium is for ALL pupils to leave school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
