Physical Education


"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."

John F. Kennedy

Physical Education: Our Intent for the subject.

Physical education develops children’s physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to perform in a wide range of physical activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops in children, both as individuals and in groups and teams, confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation.  These, together with the development of positive values and attitudes in PE, are the basis for children’s lifelong and life-wide learning to face the challenges of the 21st Century.

 How it fits within our school vision.

Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).

It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.

School Vision Statement

At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
