At Wainscott Primary School we provide all children with a wide and diverse range of physical activity. We promote an inclusive skills based curriculum which shows progression and allows children to build upon these skills as they move through the school.
We recognise the importance that physical activity can have on a child’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing and through our PE curriculum we aim to develop a healthy lifestyle and mind set in all our children.
Through PE at Wainscott, we aim for all children to enjoy PE and not only develop a range of sporting skills, but also develop their self-esteem, fitness and teamwork. Our PE curriculum allows the children to take risks be competitive and show determination and resilience.
We aim for all our children to take part in inter or intra sports throughout the school year.
In our school, P.E. is taught to all children irrespective of their gender, race, creed or ability. It is important that all children are provided with equal access to all curriculum areas.
Physical Education is the development of pupils’ physical competence and confidence and their ability to perform in a range of activities which promote skillfulness. It is the foundation of all sports participation in which children learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions and ideas individually and in teams. P.E. promotes the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and taking regular exercise in order to develop healthy bodies and minds for the future.
A high quality of physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
We use the Power of PE to support learning.
