Physical Education

PE intent

At St Newlyn East Learning Academy the Physical Education curriculum is designed to: inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and/or other physically demanding activities, appreciate the importance of being active for at least 60 minutes a day and recognise the life-long health benefits associated with being physically active.

We are passionate about how a child’s early experiences within Physical Education can impact life- long participation. We therefore offer children opportunities to develop memories and fundamental movement skills in an environment where all children feel included, valued, challenged and supported. This is a philosophy that puts physical activity, emotional and thinking skills into practise with the learner being at the centre of everything that is done.

As a school we pride ourselves on ensuring our pupils are equipped with the necessary skills to succeed at secondary school. Considering this, we aim to ensure that all pupils have been equipped with the knowledge, physical skill sets, thinking and emotional skills required to succeed and excel in competitive sport and physical activity in secondary school.

We are committed to ensuring all children get the opportunity to take part in Physical activity with other schools in the local area. By taking advantage of the Newquay sports partnership, children are able to take part in either participation level events or competitive fixtures focusing on the values of sportsmanship and fair play.
