Sports Provision and Swimming
At Easington Lane Primary, pupils are taught athletics, competitive games, dance, gymnastics, outdoor activities and swimming. We aim to provide P.E. opportunities that are enjoyable and, in turn, raise participation levels both in and out of school.
Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy body and begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness. This work is closely aligned with the school’s policy on health education.
In a PE lesson, teachers ensure that pupils are active for the majority of the lesson. Periods of inactivity are kept to a minimum. The PE lesson is usually structured with a warm up, skill development and application, cool down. Each lesson should incorporate the 4 aspects of learning:
- Acquiring and developing skills
- Selecting and applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas
- Knowledge and understanding of fitness and health
- Evaluating and improving performance
Easington Lane Primary competes against local schools in a variety of sports, using the Sainsbury’s School Games programme of events.
