Physical Education

Wembley Downs Primary School

FotorCreated2Students at Wembley Downs love their sport, and are encouraged to be active through our daily Fitness Program. We understand that every child has different abilities and interests; therefore our aim is to expose the students to a variety of sports and disciplines to broaden the child’s experience on the sports field.

Health and physical wellbeing is a priority in our school. The Fundamental Movement skills and the Fundamental Game Strategies are key components of the Physical Education Program. The focus is on a developmental pathway in which students’ progress through the two programs, from years one to six, leaving the school with the skills needed for confident participation in sport and recreational activities. The program also enables students to make responsible informed decisions about health and physical activity.

As part of the Health and Physical Education Program there is an emphasis on the development of life skills to encourage resilience, respect and confidence, to allow students to reach their full potential. The Physical Education Program encourages all students to enjoy and participate fully in all physical activity.  We also encourage community involvement in our sports program by participating in walk to school day and our Running Club invites parents and children to get fit together.

Assessment is based on Monitoring Standards in Education, Fundamental Movement Skills and Fundamental Games Strategies Testing.
