Physical Education

We believe that, when taught well, physical education both excites and inspires pupils to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise.
We believe that, when taught well, physical education both excites and inspires pupils to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise.

We believe that this is possible with the right training and practice, competition and motivation to develop their long term physical ability. All pupils are given opportunity to realise their potential within a sport or other physical activity.

Our PE curriculum helps pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. It also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision making and analysis as well as social skills such as teamwork and communication.

Our school is working consistently to raise standards and achievement in sport across the school, by improving the quality of teaching and assessment in this subject through staff professional development. Children receive two hours of PE lessons a week, from specialist coaches, as well as their class teacher to ensure the breadth of the curriculum is covered.  In KS2, children’s physical education is supported by weekly swimming lessons.

We are keen to allow children an opportunity to express themselves creatively through PE. All children receive at least two modules of dance a year. Children are taught to use stimuli, music and sequence to build a final performance. At Welbourne we also believe a solid foundation in gymnastics is essential to ensuring children are able to sit, stand and balance correctly.

Children are encouraged throughout the school day to increase the amount of physical activity they participate ion. This includes lunch and playtime games as well as before and after school clubs.

We are committed to promoting healthy and active lifestyle choices across the school in all curriculum areas and in partnership with our school meals provider. Children receive workshops and advise from external organisations to help them make better choices for the rest of their lives.
