PE contributes to the pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. It also supports children’s learning in other subject areas such as English, Maths and Science.
The teaching of physical activities aims to increase the pupil’s self-confidence and enable them to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. Lessons include a balance of individual, co-operative and competitive activities to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. The areas covered throughout school are delivered at an appropriate level for the children with the aim of creating stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning experiences for all. We want the children to see sport in a positive light, develop new skills and have fun!
Children in Years 1 to 6 are benefitting from P.E being taught not only by their class teacher but also P.E specialists from outside agencies, this is giving the children experience of being taught by different people and further opportunities to learn and develop their sporting skills. In year 4 pupils have weekly swimming lessons. All year groups benefit from some specialist teaching each week.
Y6 children also have opportunities to extend the range of sports that they can engage with during our annual residential to Robinwood, which offers opportunities to take part in a wide range of adventurous sporting activities.
