Physical Education

As a school we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to all pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum at Halfpenny Lane aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self- confidence. We aim to provide children with a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities, to cater for individual needs and abilities. Our schemes of work are based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils. Our approach aims to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through a balanced range of relevant activities.
