Physical Education

Physical Education

 Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking our potential.” – Liane Cardes

Aspiration - At Ash Croft Primary Academy, we strive to create opportunities, raise aspirations and positively influence the health and wellbeing of young people through sport and physical activity.

Collaboration - at Ash Croft, we teach the value of teamwork through our curriculum, sports clubs and team sports.  An enjoyable and positive environment, whilst encouraging effective communication, helps build respect and tolerance.

Experience – We believe that positive experiences help build the foundations for an active life. If children and young people have experiences that feel fun, positive and give them a sense of confidence, they are more likely to want to be active in the future.  We give all children the opportunity to represent the school in a wide range of sporting activities and competition.

PE develops pupils' physical competence and confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It promotes skilfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action.  We hope that through our program of physical activities, children -

  • Improve physical fitness
  • Develop skill and motor skills
  • Gain regular, healthful physical activity
  • Develop self-discipline
  • Influence moral development, leadership, cooperation with others
  • Reduce stress – an outlet for releasing tension and anxiety
  • Strengthen peer relationships
  • Improve self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Develop respect for their body, classmates and teammates
  • Experience setting goals
  • Improve academic achievement

Through all of these, our children are able to become ACE sportspeople.
