Physical Education Overview
At Ley Top Primary School, we believe that the learning of Physical Education creates environments that develop physical, mental and social skills through experiential learning. We look to offer a wide variety of activities that are inclusive and engaging for all students whilst meeting the National Curriculum expectations. This promotes a sense of drive towards progression and personal improvement for each individual. Children are expected to participate in every lesson and persevere through challenging situations. Your child will develop a range of skills and knowledge of many different activities such as; gymnastics, dance, athletics, basketball and many others. In year 5, we also ensure the children regularly take part in swimming sessions at the Academy of Swimming, formerly known as Rhodesway Pool. Promoting a love of learning through physical education, we also provide fantastic opportunities for children to participate in after school clubs such as Dodgeball, Curling and Tag Rugby. We are also part of ‘Your School Games’ which enables us to regularly participate in competitions.
