Physical Education


Physical Education (P.E.) plays a huge role in the development of children at Westbourne Primary School; each child improves their social, physical and emotional well-being within their lesson time. At Westbourne our philosophy is: ‘we learn to move’ to ‘move we learn’; being active helps each child explore a range of skills that are tailored the child’s needs. Westbourne puts a huge emphasis on enjoyment in a safe and secure setting within Physical Education and ensures that each and every child actively enjoys their lesson time. The current curriculum is extensive, detailed and varied to give the child the best possible learning environment and start to their active life.
