Physical Education

Physical education at EWPA is of key importance to us. Children who are physically active and eat a balanced and healthy diet will have higher levels of energy. This will allow them to engage in and enjoy their learning. It helps them to feel healthy and supports them in developing their motor skills.

Our aim is to develop healthy lifestyles and increase our children’s physical fitness through our curriculum. This includes outdoor sports, gymnastics and developing skills which allow children to work as part of a team. Our staff work hard to ensure that P.E. lessons and physical activity develop inter-personal skills such as resilience, confidence and sportsmanship.


This year we are working collaboratively with Teach School Sports to ensure that our children are given a physical education that is challenging and develops their skills. Children are able to take part in both lunch time and after school clubs which include a variety of sports such as football, breakfast gymnastics and multi sports.


Involvement in competitive sports is imperative in developing skills that help children to participate in sports throughout their lives. Through our work with Teach School Sports, we are focusing on developing access to competitive sports across the school. This currently includes a boys and girls football team and raising the amount of tournaments that we participate in against schools across the borough. Each year, our Year 5 and 6 children are able to take part in the TKAT Games. This includes a range of field and track events against other schools in the academy.

Speed Stacking Festival
In October, children from Year 3 and 4 attended the Speed Stacking Festival as part of the School Games. The children enjoyed learning different speed stacking skills and applying these to different games. They worked hard to build the tallest tower using the speed stacking cups and working alongside children from different schools. The children showed amazing sportsmanship as they took part in different races. Well done Year 3 and 4. 
Athletics competition
In November, children from Year 5 and 6 took part in the Sports Hall Athletics Heats. They showed sheer determination and skill as they took part in each activity and were extremely supportive of each other and other schools. They took part in field events including Javelin, Speed Bounce and Standing Long Jump and track events including boys and girls laps. Due to their hard work and perseverance, we came 3rd in our heats. Amazing effort Year 5 and 6.

PE Lessons - Reception
R2 have been working really hard to become 'champion gymnasts' in our P.E. lessons over the last few weeks. We have been exploring high movements and making high shapes using our bodies and the apparatus. Excellent effort R2!
