Physical education at Brightwell

  •     Lead healthy and active lives



PE at Brightwell

Coaches and staff at Brightwell are looking to raise pupil’s achievement and promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development through well led, planned and assessed lessons.

We aim to teach the whole child and endeavour to make connections, give them confidence, build their character, inspire their creativity, make them caring and compassionate and of course, competent when taking part in PE.

We aim to offer an exciting, challenging and well structured environment in which they can discover all that is good about sport.

The staff at Brightwell believe that they offer opportunities for pupils to take part in a range of sporting events or activities that promote the children's SMSC.

The coaching and teaching at Brightwell is helping to develop the children’s core movement, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and co-ordination, individually and with others.

They are engaging in competitive and co-operative physical activity in a range of challenging situations.

They are beginning to evaluate and recognise their own success and understand how to succeed in different activities.

Brightwell contribute to a leading role in developing sport across the Wallingford Area Partnership.

We use Wallingford School to host netball tournaments. The tournament is organised by our PE co-ordinator with support from staff and was supported by secondary students from Wallingford School, (Sports Leaders).
