Our school ethos is by teaching children how to lead healthy lifestyles and providing them with opportunities to develop skills such as communication, teamwork, perseverance and problem solving. Children in our school have many opportunities to take part in a range of physical activities and games throughout the school day, in PE and during break and lunchtimes. We want our pupils to enjoy learning new sports, knowledge and skills through engaging and practical activities that allow them to build up their self-confidence and develop a love of sport. This learning will help encourage the children to stay healthy and active and allow them to understand the importance and benefits of physical activity.
At Westcliffe Primary School, we are members of the Get Ahead Partnership and we work closely with them to ensure we are delivering the entire national curriculum in informative, yet exciting ways. It also helps to give our pupils access to a varied range of physical activities through memorable experiences and to take part in competition which will develop their confidence and drive them to do their best and improve their performances.
We use our Sports Premium to employ Premier Education to deliver sport activities every Tuesday and Friday during the school day. Throughout the year every child will receive the chance to take part in exciting and inspiring sessions led by the Premier Education coaches. As part of the package, each Tuesday and Friday lunchtime and afterschool, opportunities are available for the children to partake in further sporting activities and clubs.
