The Government believes that two hours of physical activity a week, including the National Curriculum for physical education and extra-curricular activities, should be an aspiration for all schools. This applies throughout all key stages.
At Lunsford Primary School, we believe strongly in promoting the development of the ‘whole child’ and their self-esteem through a broad and balanced curriculum emphasis on the creative arts and Personal Social and Health Education.
Forest School is also part of our Physical Education provision.
Our PE Curriculum can be viewed below:
The children at Lunsford are taught progressive skills in games and gymnastics. The emphasis is on learning skills and sportsmanship but the school also teaches creative P.E. In the Infant years, children are helped to develop co-ordination, balance and dexterity. As the children grow, they take on more advanced skills and begin to learn game rules and techniques. By the Junior years, the children are taking part in football, netball, rounders and cricket. The children also participate in dance activities which are taught alongside other PE activities. The lessons include aspects of movement and musical interpretation as well as devising dance routines.
