Physical Education

Curriculum Statement:

PE at Watermill School should be fully inclusive and allow ALL pupils to develop a range of personal, social and physical skills through participation in sport and physical activity.

  • Develop competence and interests in a broad range of physical activities.
  • Ensure that pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • Provide opportunities for pupils to engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Empower pupils to lead healthy, active lives
  • An enjoyable environment where pupils are encouraged to try regardless of success.
  • To develop social, emotional, cognitive and creative skills that can be used beyond just a PE environment.

This is achieved thought providing a range of learning activities that are physical in nature and facilitate depth in the growth of cognitive, personal, social, creative, physical and health related abilities.

The PE program of study is guided by the suggestions of the National Curriculum in order to give a breadth and depth to the curriculum.
