Physical Education at Orchard Academy
At Orchard Academy, we believe it is important that children are able to keep active and healthy.
This helps them to be successful with their learning. All children take part in 2 PE lessons each week, both inside and outside. All lessons are delivered by our specialist PE teachers, or Sports Coach.
Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.
All children in Year 4 will spend one term going swimming where they will learn to swim. These lessons are delivered by qualified swimming instructors with the support of our PE staff.
