Our Vision for Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (P.E.S.S.P.A.)

For every subject that we teach, we have a clear and challenging vision that drives everything we teach and children learn in that subject. Pudsey Bolton Royd believes that P.E.S.S.P.A. is an integral part of a child's physical, educational and emotional development.  Our intent is to promote a long term healthy lifestyle and inspire pupils to participate fully, developing a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and exercise. Every child should be able to experience a range of opportunities to develop their fitness, health and well-being. Pupils should, through the delivery of a rich and varied curriculum, and both competitive and non-competitive sporting events, become confident and resilient in physical activity. Pupils will have the opportunity to achieve their personal best and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become physically literate. At the same time pupils will develop socially through leadership, communication and teamwork skills.
