PE and Sports at Westwood Primary School
Children and staff promote healthy lifestyles and being active. Our children have access to two hours of Physical Activity a week. This is delivered through PE lessons, extra-curricular lunchtime clubs, morning clubs and after school clubs and Woodland School. Early Years and KS1 also have access to the garden areas where physical activity and physical development is further supported.
Our children are also provided with opportunities to be active and participate in competitive sport through an extremely comprehensive Inter School competitions calendar from both The North of Suffolk Active Learning Trust Hub Championships and the Lowestoft and Beccles Schools Sports Partnership.
All children at our school from KS1 up to KS2 are taught PE in accordance with the New Curriculum objectives and are tracked in their progress. We teach all of our children a vast range of gymnastics, dance, games, athletics and Year 4 take part in swimming lessons.
The National Curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives.
Below is an outline of what children will be learning in their PE lessons for the 2018-2019 academic year:
