We are Sportspeople

At Brackenbury Primary School we recognise that the foundations of Physical Literacy (when children develop the skills, confidence and love of movement to be physically active for life) are set in early childhood experiences and opportunities. Therefore, we understand the role that high quality PE and sporting provision has. Our vision is for every child to participate, succeed and achieve and wish to lead a physically active and healthy lifestyle.

We strive to inspire our children through fun and engaging PE lessons that are challenging and accessible to all. We follow a progressive skills and knowledge based scheme of work in which a wide variety of physical activities are offered throughout their primary school career. Through our teaching we provide opportunities for pupils to develop transferable skills and promote values, such as fairness and respect, as well as focus our 3 school values – pride, determination and bravery.

To further encourage physical literacy we ensure that physical activity is at the heart of our playtimes through our OPAL approach. The Brighton and Hove School Games program also allows many children in our school to take part in sporting festivals and experiences beyond the school curriculum.

Comments form our Sports Captains:

Kiki “PE is a fun experience. It lets us work together and show how we are determined and keep trying.

Aria “ If you do something that is fun at school it might encourage you to do it when you’re a teenager or an adult.

Dontre “It gives me confidence. But it’s not about being the best at everything. It teaches us about teamwork and playing fairly.”

Vincent. “It gives us skills we will need in life. It also lets me improve skills for games. “

Aria “Our friendships develop, you might end up playing with people you wouldn’t normally.
