PE and Sport play a very important role in the life of Fountain Primary School.
At Fountain Primary School we recognise that each child, regardless of ability or background, should have equal access to a PE and Sports curriculum that will allow them to reach their full potential. Teachers work closely with specialist PE coaches to deliver an innovative, inclusive programme of study which allows our children to excel at sport. At the heart of our curriculum lie the following the values: motivation, teamwork, attitude, performance, perseverance and sportsmanship. The awards of ‘PE Hero of the Week’ and ‘Class of the Week’ are based upon these values being evident.
Sport provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and to manage both winning and losing. For this reason, competition is a valued part of life at Fountain Primary School. Our children regularly take part in tournaments and competitions with schools in our local area.
There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. At Fountain, we firmly believe that high quality physical education and school sport will contribute to a range of outcomes for our children, ultimately improving their physical, mental and social well being. Developing a life-long love of PE and Sport will ensure children at Fountain Primary School go on to lead healthy lifestyles in the future.
