A high-quality physical education (PE) curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Our vision is for all children at Horspath Primary School to experience excellent physical education, school sport and physical activity that will encourage life-long participation and healthy behaviours.
Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed.
We aim to enable physical literacy and opportunities to allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such fair play and respect. PE also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision-making and analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication.
Our PE curriculum aims to be inclusive and ensure that all pupils can access the range of activities we offer.
