School ethos on PE and school sport

Children in Ashbrook Junior School enjoy a rich variety of experiences in Physical Education. Opportunities are provided which will enable them to plan, participate in and evaluate work appropriate to their age and their needs.

The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health.

Gaining knowledge and understanding and developing a range of social skills are considered important aspects of Physical Education, as well as improving the physical skills, health and fitness of our children.

Additionally, we will encourage everyone in our care to adopt a lifelong commitment to a healthy, active and enjoyable lifestyle.

School sport achievements

Ashbrook Junior School have appointed four Sports Ambassadors within school who allow children to have a voice within the PE curriculum at School. Of these children, three were successful in the Rising stars programme for their skills within physical activity. Ashbrook have won an award for taking part in the Boys Literacy project to improve Literacy Reading skills by linking this to football. Ashbrook have also won a ‘Fair play’ award at a Tennis competition attended by Year 3 and 4 children. We have attended multiskills festivals with the lower year groups and are waiting to attend the first Cycle competition being delivered this year. This year we have been raising money for charity through a whole school Danceathon and are in the process of preparing to raise more money for the British Heart Foundation through the ‘Jump rope for heart’ event.
