At The Willows Primary School, our carefully planned and progressive P.E. curriculum is designed with the target of all children becoming physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness whilst also demonstrating respect and fairness. We want all children to find the activity in which they can shine and enjoy in the future and outside of school to enable them to live a healthy, active lifestyle. We aim to do this by making sure they meet the National Curriculum expectations, to:

  •  Develop the competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  •  Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  •  Engage in competitive sports and activities
  •  Lead healthy, active lives

At The Willows, we place a high importance on providing all children with the opportunity to take part in competitive activities in school, at town, city or county levels. The enjoyment and confidence gained from these opportunities flows through the rest of the curriculum helping children to not only achieve in sport but also other academic areas. These opportunities for healthy competition allows children to experience success and failure and therefore grow in character. All children from Nursery to Year 6 take part in an annual Sports Day where they learn about competition and enjoying a range of different activities with their peers. We also host an annual Fun Run where families can come along and enjoy a short run with lots of fun obstacles thrown in! This is always a well-supported event!

We celebrate children’s in school and out of school successes via our monthly newsletter and at the end of the year via our Sports Awards Evening. We work closely with Stoke City and other primaries across our town to give our pupils at The Willows the best opportunities and experiences.
