Sport (Lower) 

“Coach me and I will learn. Challenge me and I will grow. Believe in me and I will win.”

At Spring Brook Lower we want pupils to love all sport and physical activity.

It is our aim across the Primary phase:

 • To enable all pupils to enjoy physical activity, improve their self-esteem and body image and be encouraged to live a healthy, active lifestyle in the future.

• To increase all pupils capacity of resilience, independence and responsibility in dealing with success or failure in varying situations.

• To improve all pupils social skills, positive communication and teamwork abilities in preparation for co-operation and the future workplace.

• To develop all pupils leadership skills and confidence to make appropriate decisions and be able to solve problems.

• To improve physical fitness and co-ordination.

• To provide a foundation for pupils to compete in sport and physical activity in the future.

Sport & Physical Activity Lessons at Spring Brook Lower 

Lessons are planned to include age appropriate content but taught at the child’s individual level so that they can access new knowledge, build on prior learning and continue to develop their physical literacy in each topic. 

Within each topic area opportunities for leadership, decision making and independence are made available and staff will engage and motivate pupils by role modelling consistently and constantly.
