The intent for PE at Devonshire Junior

At Devonshire Junior Academy our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and become more physically confident and competent.  

Children will be inspired by physical activity and will be given the opportunity to think critically and creatively through the Physical Education curriculum. Lessons will be skill based and progressive and will include links to our learning challenges, where possible.

Within PE lessons, children will be exposed to a range of activities and sports to inspire a wider participation inside and outside of school.

We aim to inspire our children to have an interest and love for sport and continue this into their later lives. Leaving school equipped with the resilience and the perseverance required for life long physical activity. Furthermore, children will develop an understanding of the importance of physical health and fitness educating them on a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle and the impacts on their own mental health and wellbeing.
