Return to Curriculum


At Icknield Walk First School we provide enjoyable opportunities, through a high quality curriculum and range of activities, to develop the children’s fundamental physical skills. Through this they recognise their own success, in order to be inspired to lead a healthy active life.

Together with other subjects, PE helps to prepare pupils for adult life and contributes to the development of a wide range of physical, personal, social, learning and thinking skills.

Opportunities also exist in PE for pupils to gradually be given more responsibility to plan, lead and organise events and develop the right attitude to competition – to be positive in defeat and gracious in victory. PE can help your child to develop positive attitudes which lead to success.

Our school has the Gold School Games Award and the Healthy Schools Award as a result of our commitment to physical education and involvement in competitive sports.
