At Newfield Primary School, we believe that children should know the importance of living a healthy active lifestyle and know how to do so. We want them to use their school values to achieve the best that they can be. We want them to grow in our school community with a healthy body and healthy mind. At Newfield, we strive for children to develop a love of sport and physical activity so they remain healthy and active into adulthood.
Newfield believes that physical education is part of what supports children in having a healthy active lifestyle. PE experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.
