Physical Education at The Duke of Bedford Primary School

At The Duke of Bedford Primary School, we aim to provide a PE curriculum that develops the fundamental skills and knowledge for children to attain optimum physical and emotional health. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically competent to support their health and fitness and develop good habits for a lifelong participation in sport.  We intend to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities to compete in sport and other activities as this builds character and helps to embed values such as fairness, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect. Swimming is an important life skill and now with our own school pool, we aim for all children to leave primary school being able to swim at least 25m.
