Physical Education

Children in the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception classes) follow a programme of activities, both indoors and outside, to provide experiences to develop motor skills and physical development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance. On entering KS1, children will follow the PE National Curriculum Programme of Study. All children take part in PE lessons unless there is a medical reason why they should not do so. If your child is to be excused from PE please put the reason in writing or mention it to the class teacher.

Our aim is that every child will experience success and grow to recognise that taking part in sport and physical activity is of great personal value. All children are taught skills applicable to a variety of team games such as football, netball, hockey and cricket and they will also be introduced to individual sports such as dance, gymnastics, tennis, athletics and cross country. In addition to PE lessons, children will have the opportunity to take part in the Daily Mile which promotes both physical and emotional well-being. Underpinning all sport and PE in the school is an ethos of good sportsmanship and fair play.

Children from Year 3 onwards have the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons where the main aim is to ensure that all children can confidently swim 25m by the time they leave for secondary school. Once your child can swim 25m they will have the opportunity to further develop their technique and swim greater distances.

Wheatlands is part of the Redcar and Eston School Sports Partnership and can therefore offer a wide variety of sporting opportunities to all children in the form of competitions, festivals and development days.
