‘Trusting in God; Growing in Wisdom’

Becoming a Sports Person

 

 

…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us fixing our eyes on Jesus..

Hebrews 12: 1b-2a

 

At Whitegate CE Primary School, we aim to inspire and nurture the next generation of sportswomen and sportsmen. We aim to provide the children with the skills and most importantly motivation to maintain an active lifestyle that helps them live a life in all its fullness.

 

At Whitegate Primary School, we are very aware of the importance of physical wellbeing and see Physical Education as a key component of primary education. Through the use of a range of sports such as netball, football, hockey, dodgeball, tennis, cricket and athletics, we enable the children to explore their what they are capable of. Through providing sporting skills development and competition, children are able to develop resilience, as well as awakening the locked-up talent and potential that is hidden inside each one of our precious children.

 

In addition to our sporting opportunities, our children are encouraged to discover the fine intricacies and find out what their bodies are capable of through gymnastics and dance. Creativity and individuality are encouraged, as the children are challenged to work independently and cooperatively to create routines using the skills they have learnt.

 

In addition to our vibrant and diverse PE curriculum, our Year 6 are trained as Physkids leaders and facilitate collaborative, fun, active games for younger pupils during playtime. Swimming is taught in lower KS2. We also offer a range of after school clubs which allow the children to engage with more sports and activities. Through engagement with the Vale Royal School Sports Partnership, we take part in numerous sporting events over the year which provide our children to opportunity to shine.

 

The aims of teaching Physical Education in our school are:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • Lead healthy, active lives.
