The intention of PE lessons at WCLA is to teach pupils how to stay fit and healthy, to develop fundamental movement skills, to provide opportunities for children to be active and exercise and to give pupils the confidence to try a wide variety of physical activities outside school.
PE is taught twice a week in every year group and is usually taught by either class teachers or by a specialist coaching company. Planning is taken from the CNSSP scheme of work. In all our PE lessons, pupils are active for the vast majority of the lesson. In KS1, pupils learn fundamental movement skills that form the foundation of skills learnt in KS2. Pupils then learn to apply these skills to specific sports. Pupils are also taught about strategy and tactical awareness.
Children will leave Year 6 ready for high school having developed confidence, focus and resilience and also be prepared for lifelong participation in physical activity.
