At Bowerham we believe that physical development is an essential part of the curriculum. It allows our children to:
- Have fun and enjoy themselves!
- Develop friendships and meet new people
- Become more determined and demonstrate resilience
- Understand and demonstrate the importance of respect for others
- Learn to develop self control and manage emotions
- Experience being part of a team and understand their contribution to it
- Win with pride and lose with grace
- Learn the importance of practice and preparation
- Learn how to set realistic goals and work towards achieving them
- Aspire to improve and challenge themselves
Bowerham Primary and Nursery School is part of the School Games. The School Games, which is funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.
In addition to the belief of doing our Bowerham Best and our school ethos, we develop the School Games values through our Sports curriculum, Intra-School competitions and Local Inter-School Competitions.
Mr Box, Miss Lloyd and Mrs Bouweraerts are the PE team within school. It is their role to lead sport across Bowerham.
The Sports Council help to run sport across school. They are selected by their class members to be representatives for sport.
Pupil’s on the sports council have a large say in what we do. They have been highly effective in implementing our sports development plans.
