The National Curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils develop competence and confidence to excel in a wide range of physical activities, are physically active for sustained periods of time, engage in cooperative and competitive sports and activities and lead healthy, active lives.
PE at Longwick aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical well-being in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.
It is our intent at Longwick to inspire lifelong participation in sport by building the firm foundations, upon which, they can grow. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and empathy whilst considering our Christian Values.
We provide a range of extra curricular sporting activities throughout the year including; Football, Netball, Cross-Country, Athletics, Multi-Sports, Cricket and Junior Jazzercise. Our annual Sports Day takes place during the Summer Term and it is always a fantastic celebration of physical activity and sport at Longwick.
We have welcomed local clubs to share their expertise and have taken part in many workshops to raise the profile of PE and Games. We enjoy celebrating the successes of our pupils both in school and externally.
