At Brampton Primary School we believe in 'Sport for all'. Through high quality teaching of PE and School Sport we aim for all our children to enjoy and engage in a wide variety of physical and sporting oppertunities and to achieve their full potential.

We hope that through increased particiaption in: 'the 'fun'-damental skills of PE, physical activity and competetive experiences all children will become confident and happy learners, who will have the desire to lead a healthy active lifestyle in adult life.

Aims of PE

Through the teaching of PE we aim to encourage the following:

To develop skilful use of the body, the ability to remember, repeat and refine actions and to perform them with increasing control.

  • To develop an increasing ability to select, link and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas.
  • To develop the ability to work independently and with others in planning, performing and evaluating their work.
  • To develop an understanding of the effects of exercise on the body, an appreciation of the value of safe exercise and healthy lifestyles.
  • To promote an understanding of safe practice and develop a sense of responsibility towards themselves and to others safety and well-being.
  • To understand the importance of fair play, both in friendly and competitive situations.

Olympic swimmer – Ross Davenport- visited our school and he gave all the children three rules he believes should be followed when performing any sport in life. He said: “Always give 100 percent, have a smile on your face and support each other.”

 Ex Paralympic swimmer Martin Mansell told all the children at Brampton, after teaching them all how to play the brilliant game of Boccia: “In sport you need the following attributes: Self Belief, Honesty, Respect, Teamwork, Dedication and passion!”

 We are sure that everyone at Brampton can follow these 3 simple rules from Ross and try to demonstrate the attributes described by Martin; not just in our PE lessons but in everything we do and this will help them all 'Be The Best That They Can Be!'
