P.E and Sport at West Drayton Academy
P.E is an important part of the curriculum to be accessed by all. PE lessons and school sport play a vital role in promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. We aim to cover as many of the West Drayton Academy values , listed below, as possible.
Work together - In all team sports that we learn.
Engage with learning - The teachers plan new and exciting lessons which keep us engaged.
Aim high to reach our goals - If we find a skill or task difficult we do not give up! We carry on until we improve and succeed.
Respect others, ourselves and our environment - We believe in fair play and respecting all our peers in gymnastics and games.
Enjoy school - We have fun in P.E and enjoy learning new skills and taking part in a variety of competitions.
Persevere until we succeed - Linked to Aim High we never give up. We keep on trying until we succeed.
Reflect and improve - In gymnastics, we perform and reflect on how we did. What do we need to improve? What did we do well?
Offer (and accept) support, especially when mistakes are made - We listen to our peers and teacher's advice so that we can improve.
Unite as a community - We take part in competitions across Hillingdon which link us to different schools in our community.
Dream about a brighter future
Children at West Drayton currently have two P.E sessions a week. One of the lessons is 'games' and the second lesson is a gym session. We have a Multi Use Games Arena (MUGA) and large gym which are well equipped for P.E lessons, clubs and lunchtime activities.
It is imperative that all children are appropriately dressed for P.E and follow the school policy. P.E Kits at West Drayton Academy consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and plimsolls/appropriate sports footwear. (See picture below) ALL jewellery including earrings should NOT be worn on P.E Day.
Children should bring their PE kit into school and leave it on their own peg so it is always available for PE lessons.
To ensure this is consistently followed teachers and LSAs will be keeping a record of children who are forgetting P.E Kits. If children forget their P.E Kit or it is not complete they will receive a verbal warning. If children forget it a second week, a letter will be sent home to notify parents/carers.
