SPORT & PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES

We aim to develop children’s enjoyment, confidence and skill in physical activity and introduce them to the pleasures of sport.

 

Physical education promotes personal, social, intellectual and physical skills and at Westward we foster co-operation, tolerance and self esteem.

 

Our School aims to promote an enjoyment of exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.  Children engage in physical activity from the Early Years upwards experiencing Games, Gymnastics and Dance.

 

The skills of Football, Netball, Rounders, Basketball, Hockey, Cricket, Tag Rugby, Swimming and Athletics are taught in the Upper School with the opportunity to gain experience in many other aspects of sport.     

  

 

All the year groups have weekly sports sessions at School.  In addition, pupils in Years 3,4,5 & 6 attend Walton Xcel Leisure Centre for a weekly two hour session where they swim under the guidance of the qualified pool coaches and enjoy further sports in the Sports Hall and Astroturf areas.

 

Years 5 & 6 pupils use the athletics track at Stompond Lane in the Autumn, Spring and Summer Terms to develop various athletic skills.  These include starts, sprints, long distance running over 400m, long jump, ball throwing and relay.

 

Pupils in the Upper School have the opportunity for School team selection in competitive football, tag rugby, hockey, rounders, tennis and netball matches against other schools, encouraging competition and team spirit.

 

                                                

 

The School is extremely active in the ISA sports competitions, where we have achieved both regional and national success over the last four years.

We have run a successful annual Westward netball tournament for many years and always look for opportunities to broaden our pupils interest in sport.

 

 

                                                                                    

 

We also have several inter-house tournaments during the year in which pupils are provided with an opportunity to showcase their skills.
