At Lakeside Primary Academy, all children have access to a minimum of 2 hours a week of PE lessons. Pupils have full access to the Physical Education National Curriculum which is differentiated to meet pupils learning needs and styles.
Through PE lessons, pupils are able to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Through participating in competitions and extra curricular activities children are able to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
As well as individual PE lessons, we incorporate physical activity throughout the curriculum as much as possible e.g. through Maths, English, Science where a lesson lends itself to be physically active.
We also have many additional opportunities to make links through sports week, an annual school sports day and regular extra-curricular activities are also provided at lunch and through afterschool clubs. All children have access to Swimming lessons in Years 5 and 6.
