Physical Education (PE)
Windy Nook Primary School believes that Physical Education (PE) is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. A high quality PE programme develops knowledge skills and understanding so that pupils can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. The PE programme at Windy Nook aims to contribute to the personal development, health and well-being, enjoyment, success and achievement of all pupils across the curriculum and beyond. The PE programme will allow pupils to learn, think and make decisions in different ways in response to creative, competitive and challenging activities. PE will also help pupils to develop personally and socially through working in teams and undertaking different roles and responsibilities. In Upper key Stage Two, the PE curriculum works in line with Thomas Hepburn’s Sporting calendar (Our secondary cluster) in a bid to help prepare children for cluster-led sporting events.
Children participate in a variety of cluster, cross cluster and authority wide competition events e.g. football, basketball, athletics, swimming.
