The PE Curriculum at Woolaston Primary
At Woolaston Primary, our aim is for every child to ‘grow, achieve and celebrate,’ and we realise the pivotal role that physical education plays in achieving this. Our school values underpin everything we do and we see sport and exercise as an opportunity to learn about and celebrate cultural diversity, as well as what it means to be globally aware. We want our children to understand how to make healthy choices, alongside the positive impact of physical activity on mental health and social skills.
At Woolaston, we utilise the expertise of ProStars (a specialist physical education company) to offer a broad and balanced PE curriculum which ensures coverage of the National Curriculum. In Key Stage 1, the curriculum focusses on the fundamental skills (exploring movement, throwing and catching, athletics and simple team games) before building upon this in Key Stage 2 where these skills are applied to specific sports (both team and individual), athletics and dance. Alongside our core offering, we take part in a good range of external competitions and events, fostering a sense of pride and belonging in our school.
It is our intention that our children develop a love of physical activity, sport and exercise. Alongside this, we hope for our learners to develop confidence, teamwork and leadership skills. These skills are taught alongside our British Values, ensuing our children develop into resilient individuals.
