Physical Development

Physical development is one of the seven, prime, areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage and is used to develop a child’s movement, handling of objects, understanding of health and levels of self-care. It involves providing opportunities for young children to be active; and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement.

Children will learn the importance of physical activity. 

‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered.'
