PE, Sport & Physical Activity
Our Physical Eduaction coordinator: Miss Lane
At Towngate Primary Academy our vision for PE is to develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity and strive to improve the importance of health and wellbeing. We want to give children the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding, with a chance to apply these in competitive situations. We want them to learn rules, establish boundaries and develop their social skills. We strive to create opportunities for children to challenge themselves in a practical setting and to develop confidence and improve. Through our teaching in PE we want to enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination and to develop children’s levels of physical activities and fundamental skills, developing the understanding of the British Valuesand SMSC.
The national curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives.
One of our aims this year is to increase our participation within competitive sporting activities out of school. Last year we attended a range of sporting activities such as; Y5 handball, Y5&6 netball, KS1 potted sports and mini olympics.

"I showed determination and resilience with alot of the activities at mini olympics because I found some things hard but I didn't give up" - Freya Y2
