PE, Sport & Physical Activity
At Towngate Primary Academy our vision for PE is to develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity and strive to improve the importance of health and wellbeing. We want to give children to opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding, with a chance to apply these in competitive situations. We want them to learn rules, establish boundaries and develop their social skills. We strive to create opportunities for children to challenge themselves in a practical setting and to develop confidence and improve.
Through our teaching in PE we want to enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination and to develop children’s levels of physical activities and fundamental skills, developing the understanding of the British Values.
With the Sports premium funding we would hope that all groups of children are able to access out of school hours learning and that the number of children taking part would increase.
We want all children to enjoy PE and access sports and activities which they would not usually have the opportunities to take part in.
We would like to develop the competitive provision across school and develop sporting spirit. We hope to increase uptake in physical activity for all groups of children and establish links with the local community to increase the number of children taking part in physical activity outside of the curriculum. We would aim to educate children about healthy choices and promote possibilities to maintain active healthy lifestyles.
Finally, through PE we would hope to improve children’s focus, positive energy, perseverance and team working skills to enhance outcomes in all aspects of the curriculum, including reading, writing and maths.
