Physical education is about providing children with a foundation and love for lifelong participation in physical activity, enabling them to become competent and confident physical movers. All children are entitled to benefit from the enjoyment of a broad and balanced PE curriculum and extra curricular activities that will extend their knowledge, physical skills and attitudes in a positive manner irrespective of race, gender, or level of ability.
Physical Education forms part of our well-being curriculum at Bedgrove Junior School. We recognise the importance of teaching our pupils about healthy lifestyles and as a result invest a huge amount of money into ensuring we deliver the best quality of PE education alongside our extra curricular activities and our engagement in local sports festivals, tournaments and leagues.
We have an excellent PE team consisting of Mr Nieysto, Mrs Tatlow, Miss Adams and Mr McDonald who have all completed their Level 2/3 coaching qualification and teach consistently outstanding PE lessons. The y are all employed by the school and work as LSAs in the morning and deliver PE in the afternoons. All of the PE team regularly engage with our other staff by supporting them in PE lessons and/or extra-curricular activities to ensure the quality of teaching is strong and sustainable across the school.
