Physical education is taught in accordance with the National Curriculum. 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.
PE at Lambton
At Lambton we endeavour to promote the importance of Physical Education and a healthy lifestyle to all our children across the school. All children can develop the fundamental PE skills of agility, co-ordination, throwing, catching, balance, running and jumping.
We offer a range of engaging, creative and exciting activities during break time and lunch time. Each day children also have active breaks in between lessons. These 3-5-minute breaks as well as activities at lunch time and break time ensure that every child is active for 30 minutes daily.
We also encourage participation in a wide range of our extra-curricular activities. Two sports clubs are run daily after school and we also have a daily active Breakfast club.
Children have developed their own Lambton Gym, which has been run by the pupils for several years now. Children work as young leaders and engage younger children in lunchtime clubs encouraging more children to be active. The school has a School Sport Organizing Committee (SSOC) and a sport club for girls (Girls' Club). These clubs are organized and run by pupils. Young leaders are eligible to be considered for our in-house sport leader award (Lambton Active Leader Award).
Our curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, are physically active for sustained periods of time, engage in competitive sports and activities, and lead healthy, active lifestyles.
We create opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to help children build character and to embed values, such as fairness and respect. Pupils’ social skills are developed through team or group work, enabling children to work together and as individuals.
The school runs several sporting teams and extra-curricular activities. Pupils also take part in local cluster festivals and other events involving children from other schools. We also hold a variety of intra-house events where children compete in a wide variety of sports.
Sports days at the end of the summer term are important events in our school year.
