Physical Education



At Brettenham Primary School we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, provide stimulating, enjoyable, satisfying and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils. The selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks, will help pupils, irrespective of their innate ability, enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential and take part in lifelong physical activity.

Outdoor and Adventure 


Year 6 traveled to North Yorkshire for a week of OAA, this included canoeing,tree climbing,zip-lining, abseiling, orienteering and bush craft. This was a fantastic experience for the children challenging them to come out of their comfort zone to problem solve, work as team and take on leadership roles. The children had an amazing time and the teachers are very proud of them all.
