At Treloweth School, we believe that Physical Education contributes significantly to children’s learning and development across physical, social, emotional and cognitive domains.
We also believe that, when Early Years and Primary Physical Education are taught well, that they lay the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.
As a school, we are fully committed to a model of curriculum delivery that focuses upon a developmental, inclusive and safe approach, where children’s acquisition of fundamental movement skills is of high priority.
We deliver a wide range of physical activities at Treloweth with the aim of engaging and inspiring all of our children. We are committed to ensuring that all children receive at least two hours of well-planned, high quality Physical Education every week.
During the year every pupil receives a wide range of lessons encompassing Games, Athletics, Gymnastics, Outdoor Education and Dance lessons. Swimming lessons are also incorporated into the curriculum for classes in Years 4, 5 and 6.
We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe, engaging and supportive environment, is a significant factor in developing our children’s physical competence and confidence.
At Treloweth, we promote physical skillfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. We aim to give a stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experience. Children may work individually, in pairs or take part in group activities. During co-operative, creative and competitive situations they are always encouraged to use their improvisation and problem-solving skills.
As a school we strive to bring competitive sports to your child entering competitions, including football, netball, swimming, gymnastics and athletics. We also take part in dance, cricket, tag-rugby and tennis competitions throughout the year.
Aside from competitive games, we also promote sports through a variety of early morning and after-school clubs at the school. This year we have worked hard to expand our extra-curricular sporting provision and offer a wide range of opportunities for the children from EYFS to Year 6 to participate in.
Through a broad, balanced and creative curriculum, we hope that all of our pupils become confident individuals, and successful learners, who adopt a healthy lifestyle.
We offer many sports-focused after school clubs, and can direct children, parents and carers to local sporting clubs, so please do ask. Click on the link below to see which clubs are running this term.
We have been awarded the Healthy Schools Award, which recognises our commitment to improving the education around making healthier choices.
We are proud to work with Healthy Schools Cornwall. Their website is full of great resources for both the school and parents. This can be found at: http://www.cornwallhealthyschools.org
We encourage children in Year 5 and 6 to develop their understanding of road safety, including on bikes, through 'Bikeability'.
