Physical Education at Burradon Community Primary School takes it's main aim from one of the school's core values:
Persevere and be resilient - be the best you can.
In PE, our intent for the curriculum we provide our pupils is to inspire and motivate them to participate fully and develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and exercise. Our school values are threaded through all we offer in PE at Burradon.
Our staff endeavour to put Physical Development at the forefront of the curriculum; they plan and provide cross-curricular opportunities for the children to learn in an active, physical way. We ensure that all KS1 and KS2 children take part in 2 hours of progressive and challenging PE lessons every week. Each Foundation Stage class takes part in a PE lesson once each week and the children are submerged in opportunities to develop physically. All foundation stage children are encouraged to develop their gross and fine motor skills in small group, whole class sessions and individual focussed activities.
Our PE curriculum allows our pupils to have the opportunity to:
The children at Burradon have a strong awareness of what it means to be fit and healthy both physically and mentally. Our children participate in many class activities and discussions as well as whole school house team days linked to healthy living, sports and exercise, and cookery and healthy eating. National Sports Week plays an important role in raising the children’s knowledge and understanding of fitness, health and wellbeing too.
We are very proud to be a 'Platinum Award School!'
