Physical Education at Orchard Meadow

Our Intent

At Orchard Meadow pupils will have the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills and learn how to apply them in different ways. The curriculum is designed to develop fundamental movement skills and give all pupils the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

Pupils will be challenged to achieve their personal best and see the best in everyone, whether in lesson or at competition. Physical Education will promote a love of learning through a child centred approach, shifting responsibility to our learners, with our key drivers at the very heart; Respect, Determination, Creativity, Confidence, Enthusiasm and Ambition.
