Physical Education (PE)


At Godstone Primary and Nursery School, we seek to provide a full, varied and interesting Physical Education curriculum, which challenges, engages and excites pupils. We aim to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being.  Through the teaching of PE pupils will develop physical competence, confidence and the ability to use these to participate in a wide variety of sports. Children will also experience elements of self-challenge that build resilience, problem solving and teamwork. By providing the opportunities for children to partake in internal and external competitive sporting activities, children will foster a positive attitude towards fairness and respect, whilst also learning to cope with both success and failure.
