At Evolve Academy the Physical Education intent is to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. We want all children to experience and develop a wide variety of sports and physical skills, promoting a healthy lifestyle and a love for being active. PE can promote self-esteem through being active, problem solving and physical challenges developing respect, discipline, confidence, teamwork, boundaries, and independence. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in individual and team activities both, applying a competitive element where appropriate.

At Evolve Academy, we teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression linked with PHSE and science. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on from children’s starting points on arrival at Evolve and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all. Children gain experience of a variety of fundamental skills built upon KS1-KS3 set skills. This has a focus on gross motor skills, agility, balance, coordination, and physical fitness. Taking a personalised approach to learning and resources, children take part individually and in teams, participating in multi-skills activities and individual and team games and sports.
Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Evolve Academy, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes
