At West Acton we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and wellbeing.
Taking part in PE and School Sport has significant benefits for all our students. It helps our students to become more active and healthy, and can play a vital role in developing young people’s confidence and self-esteem, help to develop team work and wider social and personal skills.
At West Acton we are working with the very supportive Willow Tree School Sports Partnership to ensure our PE programme maximises opportunities for all our students to access high-quality PE and school sport. All of our students take part in a minimum of 2 hours curriculum PE (this includes swimming in Year 4) and have opportunities to take part in a further hour of high quality PE and school sport.
This is achieved through our comprehensive School Sports programme. Many students will also have access to a wide variety of inter school sporting competitions such as an inter-school football league, Quicksticks hockey and participation in a multi-skills festival.
As PE is a statutory subject all students are required to have and change into and out of a PE kit before and after their lessons or club.
PE Curriculum Academic Year 2014/ 2015
The PE curriculum is delivered by our partners ELMs Sport, in conjunction with class teachers. During the course of the year the children will learn and develop their skills in a range of the sports and activities listed below.
All of the skills learnt in the early years transfer to the activities in all other years, and eventually help the children to perform modified sports developed by the National Governing Bodies.
The skills, activities and sports learnt in lessons are also supported by teachers delivering 10-a-day activities and out of school hour’s clubs.
