At Lightwater Village School we aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing for all pupils both now and in the future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and to be successful you have to work hard, show resilience and have a determination to believe that anything can be achieved. It is our intent at Lightwater Village School to teach the children life skills that will positively impact on their future and to demonstrate how Physical Education plays a vital part in the development of the whole child. We aim to provide every pupil at Lightwater Village School Infant School with at least 2 hours of high quality PE per week.
What does PE look like at our school?
PE Lead - Mr D Forde
Our PE curriculum is taught through discrete lessons. Our aim in physical education and sport is to teach our pupils new skills and show them how to improve in a safe and stimulating environment. By providing a wide variety of sporting opportunities both in school and off site, our pupils will become healthy and active young people ready for the next stage of their lives.
Our areas of PE learning include:
- Striking and fielding
- Net and wall
- Team building
- Invasion games
This year we will be increasing inclusive sports to reflect the need of our children.
