At Taxal and Fernilee Primary School we believe in teaching children how to move their bodies, so they can ‘learn to move’ and ‘move to learn’. We want children to learn the tools and understanding required to understand the importance of exercise, set themselves personal goals and find a sport they love so they can make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. We provide children with a wide variety of sports and physical exercises, so children are able to transfer their sporting skills from sport to sport. We promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. Sports and fitness teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive sports and allow them room to explore their own physical, personal and spiritual growth. We want to encourage all children in our school to build competitive sports and fitness into their daily lives to help them grow to be happy, healthy and confident individuals.
