Well Green Primary School recognises the value of Physical Education (P.E). We fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:
P.E. is taught at Well Green Primary School as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas, with the aim of minimising the amount of sedentary learning time for children. We teach 2 one-hour PE lessons each week, in the 3 key areas of team sports, gymnastics and dance.
We teach lessons so that children:
P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At Well Green, we provide opportunities for children 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 respect and cooperation.
