At Wickhambrook Primary Academy, all of our teaching and learning builds on our core values; Achievement, Commitment, Resilience, Respect and Responsibility.
At Wickhambrook Primary Academy, we believe in giving all pupils, irrespective of their academic or physical ability, the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and developmental programme of activities. We do so in the belief that physical education in a safe, supportive and challenging environment is a vital component in the development of children’s physical and emotional health and well being. This, we believe, includes qualities such as enjoyment, tolerance, co operation and the development of expertise. PE is also recognised as having links to many other areas of learning that allow children to develop skills across the curriculum, such as PSHE, Mathematics and Problem Solving, English and Science.
A high quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
