Willow Bank Junior School

Physical Education

The school believes that Physical Education, in a supportive environment, forms an important part of the total education of the child, contributing to their physical, social and emotional development.


We aim to develop positive attitudes to Physical Education and teach how physical exercise affects the body.  We also help all the children to develop a sense of fair play and the ability to cope with success and failure, through the teaching of skills that can be transferred from one activity to another.


Physical Education is taught within the following contexts:


  • Dance
  • Games
  • Gymnastics
  • Swimming
  • Outdoor activities
  • Athletics


When teaching these activities, we make the children aware of safety procedures.
