The value of Physical Education

At Lickey End First School we believe Physical Education (PE) and Sport plays an important role in making our school motto ‘From tiny seeds grow mighty trees’ a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young children’s lives for the better.

The curriculum at Lickey End First School for physical education aims to ensure that;

All Pupils should

  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives
