Physical Education

The Physical Education curriculum at Westacre aims to challenge children through a wide range of sports and physical activities. 

 

In KS2, children apply and develop a broad range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Children communicate, collaborate and compete with each other whilst developing an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports. Children also learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. 

 

In KS3, children learn to become competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. There are opportunities to compete in sport and other activities and children recognise that this builds character and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect.

 

Our PE lessons provide opportunities for children to develop their physical, cognitive and social skills whilst ultimately establishing a love of sport. Children will understand the importance of maintaining a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle and we hope to inspire children to regularly participate in extra-curricular sport. 

 

We have a range of sporting facilities at Westacre that include:

- A newly refurbished sports hall.

- A Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA)

- An outdoor gym equipment area

- 4 x outdoor table tennis tables

- 2 x large fields (Markings for football, rugby and an athletics track)

- A 3 court playground (Markings for basketball, netball and tennis)

 

We also use the facilities at Droitwich Leisure centre (2 minute walk from school) for swimming, fitness and a variety of other sports.
