At Northway, the PE curriculum is designed to develop, engage and inspire our children, embedding a love oof physical education fro all. From Reception to Year 6, pupils take part in a variety of activities that are aimed to develop and improve their fundamental skills both individually and through team games. This provides the opportunity for pupils to learn new skills, develop competitive spirit and enhance vital teambuilding skills.
The government has provided all schools with funding to improve Physical Education and sport in primary schools and we use our funding across a range of areas to ensure that pupils of all abilities and year groups benefit. This use of the funding is strategically planned to continually improve the sports offer for pupils at Northway. Please see the strategy below for further information.
Throughout the year, pupils are given the opportunities to take part in a range of extracurricular activities, ranging from football clubs to dance groups to yoga classes. Children are also encouraged to join teams and get involved in clubs which compete against other primary schools, such as the football team who take part in various competitions. Northway pupils also regularly attend MADCOS events at other schools, such as the multi-sports day at the local high school. The school also continues to update the equipment and resources available, ensuring that the children have a wide range of sports equipment to use both in lessons and when out on the playground to develop their skills. As a school, we endeavour to provide all children with the opportunity to learn and develop new skills so that their confidence and their attitude towards Physical Education improves along with their skills.
