PE (Physical Education) at The Avenue

At The Avenue Primary School we believe that PE has a unique role in education that extends beyond 5-18yrs, providing lifelong learning opportunities beyond the classroom. By encouraging all our pupils to be physically active, they will:

   •  Develop fundamental movement skills which are the building blocks for a sport specific curriculum            both inside and out of school.
   •  Learn to work safely.
   •  Develop many personal skills and lifelong values such as communication, collaboration and                 leadership of others.
