At Low Ash Primary School, we believe that our high-quality Physical Education curriculum provides learners with opportunities to succeed and achieve in competitive sport while significantly contributing to their health and well-being.
It is our intent to inspire an active generation who enjoy taking part in physical activities, encouraging each other to succeed and working positively together as part of a team. Our PE curriculum is closely aligned to the national curriculum but we believe that an innovative and varied curriculum, along with a large variety of extra-curricular opportunities, allows learners to connect their knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to be confident individuals. A broad and balanced curriculum also allows learners to understand the importance of their physical health and the impact this will have on their mental health and well-being. We are able to provide children with a safe and supportive environment in a large range of different physical activities which will support children’s physical, emotional, social and moral development.
We believe that children should be exposed to as many varied activities and opportunities as possible to allow children to explore their interests. This is done by them being exposed to activities that may be difficult to access outside of the school environment. Our inclusive approach also provides a variety of opportunities for learners to develop collaboration, communication and leadership skills. Our approach to Physical Education and events ensures that children are consistently given opportunities to develop personal qualities and skills, allow them to build ‘resilience’ and ‘tolerance’ through sport and competitions and learn fairness and respect, qualities that make children good members of society.
