At Wisewood Primary school we believe that our students deserve a broad and ambitious PE curriculum. We strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve the best they can. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities in order to support their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.
At Wisewood we offer a dynamic, varied and stimulating program of activity to ensure that all children progress physically through an inspirational, unique and fully inclusive PE curriculum. We encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals. All children have the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and, using the medium of sport, increase their self-esteem and develop an understanding of the importance of contributing in the context of team work. We aspire for children to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience.
The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, but at Wisewood it is so much more. Our children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Thus, embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration, contribution and equity of play.
Our vision is achieved by:
- Teaching the PE curriculum on a weekly basis.
- Making links to wider curriculum subjects where possible to ensure a holistic approach to learning of fundamental skills.
- Opportunities of extra-curricular activities are organised throughout the year offering a variety of opportunities.
- We will take part and actively seek outside opportunities from the community to encourage activity engagement and interest outside of school opportunities.
