We follow the National Curriculum as the core of our PE teaching. We focus on providing a range of sports, gymnastics and dance all underpinned by the essential skills such as balance, hand-eye coordination, speed and agility. Alongside our own teaching, we have a qualified sports coach who delivers skills based lessons once a week. This has allowed us to deliver a broader and balanced curriculum both within curriculum time and through after school clubs. This is important as most children in our local area participate in the more traditional clubs therefore we provide more varied clubs such as Orienteering and Forest School. As part of our physical activity and wellbeing program we offer a comprehension Forest School Program. Through the delivery of Forest School sessions, children have developed their resilience and independence all while accessing their own risk. By providing many physical opportunities, Ashcroft enables children to triumph in non-academic areas.
