It is our intention to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities alongside promoting healthy life style choices, the need for a balanced diet, positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere with activities that may be out of a child’s comfort zone. We are also passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others. For them to learn to be part of a team and to embed life-long values such as, fairness and respect. All pupils are provided with opportunities to take part and excel in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. This provision is enhanced through the use of the Sports Premium Funding.
There is planned overview of teaching and learning, divided into units that cover key physical education topics. This is reviewed, adapted and can flex with the needs of the children.
Rising Stars Champions Scheme is the chosen platform used to implement much of the PE curriculum however other resource materials are used to provide a rich diet around the PE curriculum.
Sport has a high profile at Bookwell and is woven and embedded into the daily life of the school. The grounds are used effectively to support physical development and there are a range of extra-curricular physical activities on offer.
Bookwell is part of the West Lakes Academy cluster of schools who collaborate to provide high quality sporting opportunities. These range from festivals, tournaments and competitions and include a diverse and rich variety of sports/physical activities.
Our PE Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress.
