‘Young players need freedom of expression to develop as creative players. They should be encouraged to try skills without fear of failure.” Arsene Wenger
P.E. at Ambler Primary School aims to develop an engaging, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed. We will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and emotional wellbeing. Our children have opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
P.E. at Ambler is an imperative element of the curriculum, which develops a need for healthy lifestyles, a balanced diet, positive growth mind-sets and the resilience and determination to persevere with activities that may have once felt challenging. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
At Ambler Primary School, we ensure that our P.E curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop and apply fundamental, core skills and apply them to a variety of sport and physical activity. All children are provided with the necessary skills and are given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
Our pupils are physically active, which has a positive cognitive impact on their learning and behaviour in the classroom. Children know and understand how to live a healthy lifestyle, understanding the importance of regular exercise to their health. We aspire for children to enjoy P.E. and always strive to achieve more in every discipline. We want our children to develop and embed a love of sport and physical activity, which they will take with them into their future.
Children are given opportunities to represent the school regularly in a variety of different sporting activities, which has increased engagement, teamwork, self-esteem and confidence in P.E. Alongside this, we actively celebrate all levels of achievement inclusively during our weekly DREAMS assembly and in the newsletter. This has been invaluable in raising the profile of P.E. at Ambler and has helped increase engagement and participation in competitive sport. We also aim for all our Year 6 pupils to be able to swim at least 25 metres and have the required skills to self-rescue in water, which are key life skills.
Let's make something beautiful together...
