We believe that physical education should provide children with opportunities to be creative, competitive, co-operative and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. We aim to promote positive attitudes toward healthy and active lifestyles. We hope that through the curriculum that we offer our children are nurtured into making choices about being involved in lifelong physical activity and to see the positive effects exercise has on both their mental and physical well being.
All children participate in a two PE sessions per week, and also have the opportunity to attend after school clubs run by staff and specialist coaches. In addition we purchase membership to the ‘Move More’ scheme and are able to attend dance and multi-skill festivals and give children experience of fun activities like balance ability and inclusive sports.
At Northway our health council has successfully initiated our popular Wheely Wednesday and Fit Five sessions which provide additional physical activity.
