At Airy Hill Primary School we recognise the many benefits of physical exercise to children’s health and well-being. We teach pupils the value of staying active and help to promote healthy lifestyles. PE provides an excellent means to teach children what it means to work in a team, strengthen their social skills and improve their focus and abilities in wider aspects of school life.

At Airy Hill we have a progressive long term plan for PE which fulfills all requirements of the National Curriculum and is delivered by specialist PE teachers, Dance teachers and HLTAs. We use our specialists to provide training and support to our class teachers to increase the quality of their PE teaching. In addition to this we use our PE and Sports Funding to engage all pupils in regular physical exercise, raise the profile of PE, widen children’s experience of sports and increase participation in sport. Further details of this can be found in our PE and Sports Premium Strategy.
