Physical Education should provide an enjoyable, satisfying and balanced programme, with opportunities for pupils to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. The Physical Education curriculum at Crawley Ridge Junior School offers a comprehensive range of experiences to meet the needs of individual pupils and the encouragement of active involvement. This is enhanced through the range of before and after school clubs available to the children along with inter-school matches and tournaments. A great emphasis is also placed on school /club links allowing children to experience a range of sport outside the curriculum.
The development of confidence, enjoyment, tolerance and the appreciation of strengths and weaknesses of both themselves and their peers are considered to be an important part of the learning process. General knowledge and understanding along with positive personal and social attitudes are also encouraged.
It is intended that the varied physical activities offered to the children, together with an awareness of the leisure opportunities available within the community, will develop those skills and attitudes conducive to involvement in an active and healthy lifestyle.
