P.E. at Lower Meadow
At Lower Meadow, Physical Education is an integral part of our curriculum and we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development. We aspire for children to adopt a positive Growth Mindset and believe that anything can be achieved with curiosity, empathy, scholarship and happiness.
At Lower Meadow, we offer a dynamic and varied program of activity to ensure that all children progress physically through a unique and fully inclusive PE curriculum, using the Imoves scheme of work. Our curriculum aims to improve the well-being and fitness of all children, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. This builds on our Trust values of Empathy, Tenacity and Scholarship.
We support our children to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. Our curriculum will develop a range of important cognitive skills, such as decision making and analysis and social skills such as teamwork and communication. It also builds self-confidence as children progress through the clear sequencing and realise success.
The curriculum builds on the Early Years Foundation Stage Physical Development where children start to develop their gross motor skills through play and exploration. Our PE Curriculum is adapted so that all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and our children in the Hearing Impaired Integrated Resource are to achieve the same outcomes as their peers through a variety of delivery methods.
