Physical Education and Health
'To challenge ourselves to be the best PE, sport and health learners we can be'
Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. Fair Furlong works in partnership the Get Set 4 PE and Progressive Sports to deliver a well-rounded curriculum that uses a holistic approach to PE beyond the physical and also promoting social, emotional and thinking skills. Additionally, In Key Stage 2 pupils are also provided with swimming lessons, working in partnership with Hengrove Leisure Centre. For at least one term each year children can develop their swimming skills including self-safe rescue and aim to reach a swimming distance of at least 25 metres by Year 6. In Year 6 children receive these swimming lessons weekly throughout the entire year.
At Fair Furlong we listen to our children’s wants and needs and provide them with a range of active and healthy experiences through breakfast clubs, lunchtimes, after school and enrichment. We support our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes. We aim to ensure that our delivery of PESSPA allows all children to have the skills and mind-set to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond.
It is important to us that we strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices and are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies in order to support our children's well-being.
We have built strong relationships with Chew Valley Rugby Club, BCFC Robins, Empire Fighting Chance and Ashton Park SSP to build a partnership that provides every opportunity for our families ‘to be the best PE and health learners they can be’.
