Children at Weston enjoy a rich variety of experiences in Physical Education, which will encourage them to adopt a lifelong commitment to a healthy, active and enjoyable lifestyle. They are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness. (This compliments the issues in the school’s policy on Health Education.)

A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is provided which enables them to plan, participate in and evaluate work appropriate to their age and their needs, with increasing self-confidence.  It encourages the children to work independently and to respond appropriately to others irrespective of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic backgrounds.

Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches endeavour to provide stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all children.

A balance of individual, paired and group activities with an emphasis on co-operation, collaboration or competitive situations aim to cater for the preferences, strengths and needs of every child. Such activities promote a broad base of movement knowledge, skills and understanding and gives them opportunities to develop their creative and expressive abilities.

Whilst retaining its unique contribution to a child’s movement education, physical education can also contribute to much wider areas of learning including the development of communication, numeracy, PSHE and ICT skills.

Physical Education is a vital component in the range of experiences offered to children in this school. This importance is reflected in the commitment to provide all children, in each year group, with at least two hours of high quality Physical Education per week. It is reasonable to expect flexibility in the timing of sessions due to the complexity of the Primary curriculum. However, the following is an accurate guide to the way in which the Physical Education programme is organised.
