Our Vision for Physical Education at Lockyer's Middle School
At Lockyer’s Middle School we believe in giving all children, irrespective of their current skill level, the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and developmental programme of activities.
We deliver high quality provision that aims to:
motivate and enthuse children so that they enjoy participating in Physical Education and school sport;
ensure that children understand the role that Physical Education can play as part of a healthy and active lifestyle;
deliver an extensive extracurricular programme which will enable all children to increase their levels of participation in a range of sports as well as providing numerous competitive activities
By the time they move on from Lockyer’s, children will be able to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
How Physical Education links to other Subjects at our School
The skills learnt and knowledge taught can be widely used across the whole curriculum. The children will have the opportunity to work collaboratively and listen to the views and opinions of others. The children will have an understanding of the effects exercise has on the body and some of the science behind it. They will also have the opportunity to design activities and review these, making changes as they see fit.
How you can help with Physical Education at home
Encourage activity outside of the school day as part of a balanced healthy, active lifestyle. Encourage resilience, determination and a ‘have a go’ attitude. If possible, allow your child to explore areas of interest in their own leisure time.
