Physical Education (PE)
Children should wear their full Smallwood PE kits to school on the days they have PE.
At Smallwood we believe that good physical and mental health plays a positive role in learning and development. Therefore we place a heavy importance on high-quality and engaging PE lessons in our curriculum and provide our pupils with a wide range of opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills.
I learnt that all my teammates are equally important.
PE, at Smallwood, is taught by external PE specialists including
- AFC Wimbledon Foundation
- SOUL Ltd
- Winston Houghton
- Zest Dance
We are passionate about our pupils learning how our physical health and mental health are connected and how one impacts the other and therefore we ensure that wellbeing remains at the centre of our learning and teaching.
I learnt that the game is all about honesty and it doesn’t matter if you win or lose.
Pupils are provided with a range of opportunities to play in team and individual sport through:
- Intra-School Competition
- Inter-School Competition at borough and local competitions
- Extra-curricular clubs before and after school
- Local sporting festivals
I learnt to communicate more with my teammates. This made us a better team.
'A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect'
