Physical Education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle, including the benefits it has on mental health and well-being. We enable children to make informed choices about physical activities throughout their lives.  We do this through encouraging children to participate for reasons of pleasure, and to develop motivation to be the best they can be, whilst maintaining good sportsmanship.  PE is inclusive at Great Bedwyn. 

We aim to develop children’s knowledge, skill and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. A varied curriculum is in place to support this, with activities including: dance, athletics, gymnastics, games, swimming and water safety and outdoor adventure activities.

 “Sport, a universal language, building more bridges between people than anything else I can think of” Sebastian Coe
