At Bishops Waltham Infant School we strongly believe that children should understand the importance of undertaking physical activity in order to develop a healthy lifestyle and the benefits that come from this. also develop a love for being physically active and for participating in sport.
The UK Chief Medical Officers’ recommend that all children should engage in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day. At Bishops Waltham we are committed to helping children to achieve this goal in a number of ways.
At playtimes and lunchtimes, the children have access to Huff and Puff play equipment to encourage physical active during these times. Lunchtime supervisors are trained to help organise and run games.
Physical activity doesn’t have to be all about PE, teachers boost activity levels by creating active lessons.

PE is mainly taught discretely but within our integrated curriculum there are also a range of themes in which PE is a key component. This includes a focus on how physical activity can support a healthy lifestyle, Brilliant Bodies project and the Dragons project, which has a dance focus.
There are five elements in the PE curriculum:- gymnastics, games, dance, athletics and swimming.
