At Watling Primary School, pupils participate in a progressive and inclusive PE curriculum that exposes our children to a broad range of high-quality sporting opportunities.

Our PE curriculum enables pupils to develop fundamental skills and knowledge, as well as key values including teamwork, resilience, communication, fairness and respect.

We recognise that all pupils have unique and individual interests which should be nurtured in an enabling environment. We therefore aspire to provide children with opportunities to experience different activities and learn new skills in weekly PE lessons, one-off PE workshops, teacher-led activities at lunchtimes, and extra-curricular clubs and competitions.

We support children to apply tactical thinking and problem-solving across various sporting activities, fostering confident communicators who use technical language to share their thoughts and ideas.

We recognise and value the importance that physical activity has on nurturing our mental and physical health. We teach our pupils the importance of leading healthy and active lifestyles, making informed and appropriate lifestyle choices, and celebrating body positivity.

We empower children to become active learners, team-players and confident communicators through taking on play-leader roles with the responsibility of innovating, organising and evaluating sporting activities for themselves and their peers at playtimes.

By encouraging active learning, teamwork and celebrating individuality, we strive to enable all children to succeed, to enjoy their learning, to take part in new experiences, and to constantly aspire to achieve their potential.

The National Curriculum Programmes of Study for PE for Key Stage 1 and 2 provide further information.
