Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Our Physical Education Intent



Physical Education at Greenacres Primary Academy aims to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that is accessible to all, broadening experiences and allowing children to succeed and excel in their physical skills development, achieve and understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle through the curriculum, including taking advantage of competing in intra and inter-school competitive sport.

We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness and at Greenacres we are passionate about the importance of teaching children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, building character and embedding life-long values such as fairness and respect.


The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives
