Physical Education (P.E) at Twydall Primary School is a subject that is inclusive of all abilities, strives towards embracing challenge, maintains high-levels of aspiration and engages all pupils, regardless of their starting points to value continuous self-improvement. Through high-quality teaching and a broad curriculum focus, children are able to develop their knowledge and skills across a range of sports and physical activities, which encourages the pupils to excel and achieve their best; underpinning the school’s values of CHARACTER. Our aim is for all children to value the importance of being physically active, and understand the role that sport can have on maintaining and following a heathy life-style in order to combat social and emotional issues which are a part of their every day. We aspire for all or pupils to leave Twydall primary, confident and competent young people, who can apply their skills and knowledge across wider aspects of their learning, as they move onto the next stage of their education, as well as the wider aspects of their everyday environment.
Children engage in high-quality lessons, delivered by their class teacher twice a week, focusing on two sports per-term.
Through the use of lesson plans and schemes of work provided by Greenacre Sports Partnership, teachers are able to adapt and plan their lessons, so that they are fully-inclusive and meet the needs of the pupils in their class.

At Twydall, we strive to provide a PE curriculum that promotes opportunities for children to develop essential skills and knowledge, which they are able to apply across a range of sporting activities, as well as wider aspects of their everyday lives. We aim to provide children the opportunity to undertake physical activity every day, whether though lessons or through play, which underpins the school’s values of CHARACTER and in turn, has a positive impact on learning and behaviour in and outside of the classroom. Through high-quality lessons, or children develop a growing love for PE and being physically active. Our pupils appreciate the importance of leading and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are able to communicate the benefits of being heathy not just in school, but in life.
