Physical Education

Our Intent 

The intent of our P.E. curriculum at Barrow is to give pupils the opportunity, knowledge and understanding to establish a life-long active and healthy lifestyle. Throughout their PE journey, our children develop fundamental movement skills as well as dance and gymnastics skills and are given opportunities to apply these to a variety of different sport settings. It is our vision for all pupils to succeed through challenge and competition, gain a mature level of physical literacy and develop their character through the key values of sport.

Forest School 

At Barrow, we invest our time in weekly forest school sessions, with each class enabling all children and staff to have access to the Forest Schools’ Curriculum.

This has many benefits:

Independence in learning

Personal awareness of health & safety

Being outdoors- in all weathers

Appreciation of the environment

Confidence building

Team skills

Learning to manipulate materials and tools safely

These are just a few of the advantages the Forest Schools’ Ethos brings.

We have always used the outdoor environment – this brings an extra dimension!
