As stated in Department of Education's Physical Education Programme of Study (Aug 2013)
‘PE develops pupils' competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school...’
PE helps pupils develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.'
At Biggin Hill Primary School we aim to enable all young people, whatever their circumstances or ability, to participate within and enjoy PE and sport, to promote young people's health, safety and wellbeing and to enable all young people to develop and achieve in line with their age and potential. We also aim to draw on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics by adopting and displaying a commitment to the Olympic Values (friendship, excellence and respect) and the Paralympic Values (inspiration, determination, courage and equality).
In line with the National Strategy for Primary Schools, Biggin Hill Primary School Academy has accepted Government funding to increase the calibre and provision of school sport. The School is committed to ensuring that quality and sustainability are chiefly attended to, as can be reflected by the particular focus placed upon enhancing professional development of teaching staff and coaches. This is being achieved through The School's close working links with Bromley Primary School Sports and Clubs Development Association as well as AfPE (Association for Physical Education).
