Throughout the school P.E. plays a significant role in the timetable. Lessons follow a structured plan, which aims to develop all of the essential skills and control children need to take part in P.E. and sport.
Lessons have a practical focus, where skills are introduced, developed and performed. During their four years at Shirley Heath, the children will complete units of work that include: Gymnastics, Dance, Games, Swimming, Athletics and fitness and health, skills and techniques and have the opportunity to evaluate and improve their own performances.
This area of the school’s work is of vital importance, having wide effects (e.g. health, physical development, recreation and co-operation) well beyond formal lessons.
