At Westfield, the aim of the Physical Education Curriculum is to provide all children with the opportunity and guidance to develop their physical abilities. Our aim is to provide practical, skill-based learning through the teaching of both physical education and sport. Our curriculum is designed to develop a child’s love of learning, physical ability, cognitive, social and sport-specific skills. Additionally, PE skills are developed and progressed within each year group. We aim for every child to enjoy physical education and hope that we can embed a love of physical activity, which will be maintained in adult life. Every child should be made to feel that they are capable of success in PE and this could be as an individual, pair or team. We believe it is important that children at Westfield understand the importance of being active and the positive effects it can have on physical and mental wellbeing. At Westfield we want each child to have the opportunity to take part in competitive activities during PE time or as an extra-curricular activity or event.
Our aim is to produce physically active, independent learners who will be keen to participate in many physical activities and sport.
