At Belleville Wix Academy, Physical Education (PE) is well established with talented specialist teachers leading an engaging, ambitious, relevant and nurturing PE curriculum.
We adopt a fundamental movement skills approach to teaching PE, ensuring that our children develop the necessary skills to be confident in secondary school and beyond, in the hope that our children become lifelong participators in physical activity. To achieve this, we offer a wide range of physical activity taught as games, gymnastics, swimming and dance.
Pupils in our English stream receive a games lesson every week and are taught gymnastics and dance alternately each week. Pupils in our bilingual stream receive a games and gymnastics lesson in their English focus week.
All pupils from Nursery to Year 6 receive gymnastics lessons from a team of extremely talented and engaging coaches who have implemented an engaging and ambitious curriculum.
We are proud of our dance provision and how it combines creativity with being physically active. The lessons are taught by a highly skilled and experienced dance teacher who has implemented a progressive learning program, taught from Nursery to Year 6.
Pupils in Year 4 are taught the three key outcomes set out by the national curriculum for swimming:
The pupils complete lessons once a week for the entire first term with highly qualified staff who ensure the safety and engagement of the students are of top priority.
- Our vast range of before and after school clubs is in place for all ages. These clubs are run by our knowledgeable PE staff and external specialist coaches which cater for all interests.
Our children have access to a fantastic sports area, funded by our PTA, as well as a growing supply of sports equipment.
Our students competed in and won the Wandsworth Schools Panathlon which is a charity that encourages students with disabilities and special needs to compete in sporting events.
- Our relationship with the Wandsworth School Games community offers opportunities to compete against other schools and develop our abilities in various sporting events.
- Our children have an exciting and inclusive sports day on Clapham Common, which we hold every year for each key stage.
- Our progressive and differentiated PE curriculum has been crafted by passionate and knowledgeable staff over many years.
