Curriculum Intent

We believe that Physical Education (PE) is a crucial subject that provides our pupils with the opportunity to engage in physical exercise, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. At Snape Wood Primary School, it is our intent to provide a fun, inclusive, and challenging PE curriculum that develops transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, and resilience, while instilling a sense of fair play and sportsmanship.

Working with Junior Jam, we aim to provide a curriculum that not only gets our pupils excited about sport but also develops their abilities, from those who are already skilled and athletic to those who struggle with fine motor skills and sports in general. We are passionate about supporting our pupils to make healthy and active lifestyle choices and ensuring that our curriculum covers the core areas of the national curriculum, while specific skills are taught in the various sports we offer.

Our curriculum intent is to provide a progressive learning experience that caters to the needs and abilities of each year group. By working closely with Junior Jam, trained professionals who lead the curriculum in half of the academic year, we ensure that our pupils receive high-quality PE lessons that cover a range of sports and disciplines. Our aim is to develop fundamental movements, promote teamwork and resilience, and instil a love for sport, ensuring that each pupil is equipped with the necessary skills to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
