Curriculum Physical Education
Physical Education at Wood End Park Academy
Wood End Park Academy, we approach Physical Education (PE) seriously
and professionally. We ensure the pupils have good role models to
inspire them to take up sport, the lessons are engaging and fun and
pupils know the importance of an active lifestyle.
curriculum also embeds the Opening Mind competences: encouraging
children to develop different life skills including valuing trial and
error, teamwork and leadership.
We emphasise the important
parts of a PE lesson: learning how to warm up, cool down and older
pupils take more responsibility by setting up their own PE lessons.
Wood End Park Academy, we recognise the role that PE has to play in
promoting a long term healthy lifestyle which is both enjoyable and
fulfilling. We aim to provide a high-quality physical education
curriculum that inspires all of our pupils to succeed and excel in
competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Through
our physical education culture, we make cross-curricular links, develop
the health and well-being of our pupils and by doing so, directly
impact improved focus and so, progress in learning including reading,
writing and mathematics.
We want to provide opportunities for
our pupils to become confident and physically literate in a way that
supports their wellbeing. In addition to this, we aim to provide
opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities in
order to build resilience and embed values such as being strategic,
fairness and respect.
Our PE and sport aspires to build
self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills enabling each child to be
the best they can be by:
- Improving health and well-being
- Providing high quality opportunities and outcomes for all
- Encouraging community involvement
- Promoting active participation and competition
- Raising achievement and supporting excellence
are constantly trying to think of ideas to improve our development in
the PE department. Different diverse ways to enhance our children’s
health, fitness and future is a key for Wood End Park.
