Physical Education

PE is part of the curriculum across each of our three sites.

 

PE at Primary

Physical Education in Primary has an important place on the Timetable as PE it is an important tool in providing opportunities for our children to build their confidence and self-esteem at the same time as  embedding  values such as fairness and respect.  It is also a vital part of promoting healthy life styles.

We ensure that over the year, every child has had access to a broad range of physical activities and participates in a variety of sports.  We achieve this through two means either a sports coach comes into school to run sessions or we go to our local sports centre for lessons.  Our PE overview for the year is below, which has been developed with the children taking into account their views on the sports they would like to try.

We also support our PE lessons by encouraging all children to play different sports at break & lunchtime and providing equipment for them to use to practise the skills that they have learnt.  At lunchtimes the children have access to footballs, basketballs, tennis rackets, skipping ropes and lots more.

When appropriate for the children we also participate in competitions with other North Somerset schools. Last year we participated in Archery and got through to the final which was a great achievement. We also participated in golf and athletic competitions.

 

PE at Year 7 & 8

We aim to offer students as wide a range of sports as possible. During Terms 1 & 2 students will take part in swimming lessons, during Terms 3 & 4 we will be using an experienced coach to deliver a range of sports for the students to experience, in Terms 5 & 6 students will have a chance to take part in trampolining.

Football is always very popular and would be the preferred sport for the majority. However, we also try and cater for students whose sporting aspirations lie elsewhere.

 

PE at Weston (Year 9, 10 & 11)

Year 10 and 11 students also access a minimum of 2 sessions of PE per week.  These sessions are based on individual fitness programmes which are regularly reviewed by an instructor.  These programmes target cardio-vascular strength, nutrition and long term fitness.  Again students are advised about external sports clubs and opportunities to meet with instructors, as well as being given access to discounted memberships.
