At Wimboldsley, we believe that PE is an essential part of our curriculum. Physical education makes a unique and vital contribution to pupils' physical, mental and social well being. Our children thrive through the many physical activities they experience and are exposed to a wide range of opportunities to ensure that each and every one of them finds a form or exercise that they can access, to instil a long lasting enjoyment of physical activity. Through our PE curriculum, we promote positive attitudes towards a healthy and happy lifestyle.
I have been the PE curriculum subject lead for many years and have enjoyed helping to inspire and encourage our pupils to develop a genuine love for sports and being active.
I enjoy all aspects of keeping fit and regularly walk, taking in the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
We have strong links with Middlewich High school, where opportunities arise for the children to interact with other primary schools in a competitive environment. In addition to this, our children are provided with opportunities to visit the high school to take part in festivals and activities, linking to the curriculum.
Our PE curriculum is delivered by Vara Sports, a professional and cooperative company, who offer a curriculum tailored to the needs of our children. In addition to this, they provide after school club enrichment activities, including multi sports and more recently, fencing.
Through our federation links with William Stockton Primary School, I work closely with Mrs Ritchie, who also brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the subject.
As subject lead, I engage in all aspects of PE, seizing the opportunity to develop my own professional development through regular observation and interaction with the skilled coaches from Vara Sports.
Our PE curriculum is clearly mapped across each year group to ensure progression of skills, whilst delivering knowledge that is built upon from previous learning. Clear and concise end Points are planned carefully in order for the children to become capable and enthusiastic musicians.
