Physical Education Delivery and Content
Our intent when delivering P.E, lessons is to encourage pupils to enjoy exercise and physical activity. We acknowledge the strong links between P.E. and other curriculum areas, encouraging resilience and developing skills by building on current strengths and imperfections.
Through our curriculum we allow our children to experience a wide variety of activities and different sports. When possible we invite coaches from local clubs and organisations to give the children the opportunity to experience new sports and more importantly to have the opinion of joining a local club. Thus encouraging them to participate in sport outside school. Visits have included, golf, tennis and cricket coaches. We also take advantage of the sporting skills of our wider community. One of our governors is a rugby coach and has taken some sessions in school; while two parents coach our netball team. We believe that seeing parents in positive sporting roles is important to encouraging pupils to be physically active themselves.
We also celebrate achievement of our pupils beyond school, encouraging them to bring in certificates and awards to be shared in our school assemblies. Our aim is to encourage all sport and physical activity both in school and beyond.
We are fortunate to have access to a swimming pool close to the school and all year groups from Year 2 upwards are given the opportunity to learn to swim. We see swimming as a valuable skill to be learnt and enjoyed.
