At Arundale we intend to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should also provide opportunities for pupils to support their health and fitness. We intend to provide a wide range of activities through specialist teaching. Giving these opportunities, we aim to build the notion of resilience, persistence, concentration, fairness and respect. The curriculum has been devised to make pupils physically active for sustained periods of time and engage in competitive sports and activities.
Year 4 children take part in swimming lessons for the whole academic year in order to help them meet the National Curriculum objective to swim confidently, proficiently over 25m and use a range of strokes.
