Physical Education at Ormesby Primary School should focus around two key concepts; ‘experience’ and ‘personal achievement.’ Every child at Ormesby Primary School should get the opportunity to experience a multitude of activities through a diverse curriculum. We aim to offer children the widest range of physical activities we can, in the hope that they will find an activity they enjoy and/or excel in. In Physical Education at Ormesby Primary School, we do not aim to ‘tick the box’ of sport required. Instead, we try to engage children in physical activity in a way they enjoy and benefit from both now and in the future. We believe that if a passion for sport and living a healthy lifestyle is instilled in children from a young age, they will go on to be more active, healthier and, in turn, happier individuals.
In terms of achievement, at we hope to instil a level of ‘personal challenge’ within children. We hope that by facilitating exercise as the norm for break times and lunchtimes, and by modelling a positive attitude to challenge, children will strive to achieve their personal best in whatever area or areas of physical activity they choose. Community links are evident to see, from friendly local rivalry with local schools. Local sports clubs coming in and delivering exciting lessons, to children taking further steps to regionally representing their school and sports clubs.
At Ormesby Primary School, we have worked hard to develop our Physical Education through curriculum time and extra-curricular activities. Varieties of sports are taught, both during the school day, and as extra-curricular clubs.
