Physical Education

Physical Education aims to give the children confidence in their developing physical abilities. Manipulative, motor and control skills are encouraged in all children, to the extent of their ability, when playing ball games. Dance and movement lessons form part of the varied programme of physical education, which also includes gymnastics, games and swimming.

Each year our older children take part in the Wilmslow and District Inter-Schools sport events, which include football, netball, rounders, cross-country running and athletics. Most importantly we encourage and teach the children to develop a sense of fair play and team spirit.

At Lacey Green we follow the National Curriculum, supported by published schemes of work. Units are planned and rotated within a 2 year cycle to ensure all pupils receive a variety of experiences, building on and consolidating skills. We participate in the annual Wilmslow inter-school cross-country competition.
 
Children selected to play on the netball and football teams compete against a number of local schools  through the year.

Key Stage 1 children are taught by their class teachers, Key Stage 2 pupils receiving tuition from two specialist members of our teaching staff, giving continuity and an overview of the children’s skill, helping their progression in their time at our school.

Extra-curricular clubs are an important part of this subject and encouragement is given to all children, regardless of skill or gender, to participate in activities which will promote the enjoyment of fitness pursuits.
