Physical Education


At Hugh Myddelton Primary School we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a unique and vital contributor to a child’s physical development and well being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for children’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.


 We believe physical education should be an area of learning where self-esteem, physical progression and positive attitudes are fostered and nurtured. Physical Education provides all children with the opportunity to succeed, whether through personal or team success. Physical Education also promotes a healthy lifestyle which children can develop and value into adulthood.
