Pupils at Witton Church Walk have 76 hours of timetabled PE during the school year. During these lessons children are given the opportunity to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. The children are given the opportunity to develop fundamental skills and apply them when engaging in competitive activities. The curriculum we provide encourages children to develop competences to excel in a broad range of physical activities across dance, gymnastics and games.
All pupils also have the opportunity to swim during KS2. Lessons are held at Brio Northwich. Children develop an understanding of water safety and provided with the opportunity to develop their range of swimming strokes. By the end of KS2, if not before, it is our aim for all children to be able to swim over a distance of at least 25 metres competently, confidently and proficiently.
Children get the opportunity to complete Bikeability training with Cycle Experience, a national bike awareness cycling program which trains the children in riding safely on the road and provides them with an understanding of basic first aid.
Funding for Primary School PE and Physical Activity
This academic year, we have received £18264.50 from the government.
The aim of this funding is to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports programs offered by primary schools and is provided jointly by various governmental departments, including Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport. Although the funding will be allocated to primary school head teachers, it will be ring fenced to be spent specifically on PE and sport in schools.
