At the Meadows Primary Academy, it is our aim that we deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe and motivate them. Physical education is an essential contributor to the development of the whole child. Through the teaching of PE, we promote having a positive attitude towards an active lifestyle. By becoming physically confident 
in a way which supports their health and fitness, children develop an understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet. It provides pupils with the opportunity to be creative, competitive and face up to different challenges as individuals and in teams. They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, officiating and coaching.
