At Asquith Primary School and Nursery, we want our children to develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and physical education. They will also be taught the benefits of exercise, encouraged to follow an active, healthy lifestyle and taught about health, hygiene and fitness.
At Asquith we follow the EYFS statutory Framework and the National Curriculum supported by ‘The PE Hub’ scheme of work. The children will access a broad and varied curriculum and will take part in a variety of games, gymnastic and dance-based activities. The children in Year 5 will participate in swimming lessons enabling them to swim 25 meters by the end of KS2. Swimming lessons will be planned and delivered to specialist swimming instructors at ‘The Rebecca Adlington Swimming Centre’.
The children at Asquith will have 2 hours of PE a week. One lesson is led by an external sports coaches from ‘On The Ball’ with assistance from class teachers to build on their knowledge and ways of teaching PE. The other is led by our PE TA with the assistance of the class teacher.
We offer after school clubs led by teaching staff and sports coaches to develop and build on children’s skills. We are also members of the Mansfield Primary School Sport Partnership.
We hope that our children leave us with a love of physical activity. We hope they will understand the importance of staying active in promoting long term health and well-being. Through strong links with PHSE and Science, we promote children taking ownership and responsibility of their own health and fitness. We aim to motivate children to become confident, resilient, disciplined and conform to the principles of fair play, teamwork and demonstrating a good sporting behaviour.
