Physical Education

The importance of physical education throughout life cannot be underestimated. At Indian Queens School we strive to give pupils opportunities and skills to allow them to become passionate about exercise and sport.
Physical Education (PE) contributes to the overall education of all children by helping them to lead full and valuable lives through engaging in purposeful and high-quality activity. It promotes active and healthy lifestyles, physical skills, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. PE enables children to learn confidence, perseverance, team spirit, positive competitiveness and organisation. Children engage in a programme of PE that encourages fitness, improves their strength and teaches them the rules of games. PE is an integral part of school practices allowing all children in the school to gain a sense of achievement and develop positive attitudes towards themselves and others. 
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on pupil numbers. This funding is used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. We use the premium to:
* Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer;
* Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
(If you wish to see further details about our Sports Premium spending, you can find the full document in the statutory information tab).
 
There are 5 key indicators that we should expect to see improvement across:
 
*the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school;
*The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement;
* Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport;
*Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
* Increased participation in competitive sport.
