Oakley Vale Primary school


“Exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude and your mood.”



Physical Education Intent

PE is a vital part of a primary school child’s education. Implementing the skills to lead an active and healthy lifestyle at this early age, as well as instilling a joy of physical activity, can have a hugely positive impact on children’s lives. Exercising regularly helps reduce the risk of obesity and developing health risks later in life, and can have a positive impact on improving mental health and social skills. For some children, PE can provide their best opportunity to really excel. Our aim at Oakley Vale is to provide children with opportunities to develop knowledge, gain fitness and compete with others to develop a love of sport and fitness.
