At Bromet we really value the importance of physical exercise and activity. Through our teaching, we aim to expose all the children to a high-quality physical education which inspires them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.
A range of opportunities to become physically confident is provided for the children in a way which supports their health and fitness. We encourage all children to be fit and healthy, to improve their skills, look after their bodies and challenge themselves at their own personal levels.
During their lessons the children will learn skills, rules and tactic of differing sports. They are taught warm up and cool down routines and understand the importance of these on their bodies.
Throughout their journey at Bromet, the children will take part in a variety of different sporting activities. Each term they will participate in both Game and Fitness sessions. Some of the sports we teach include: football, basketball, tennis, athletics, cricket, netball, gymnastics and yoga. In Key Stage 2 the children will also take part in swimming lessons.
Competitive sport is valued at Bromet, as it allows character building as well as embedding values such as fairness and respect. We are currently part of the Watford & Hertsmere Sports Partnership and take part in many competitions throughout the year such as Gymnastics, Sports Hall Athletics and Cross Country which we frequently excel in. In addition to this we also have school football teams that take part in matches and tournaments.
Throughout the year the children will take part in many new and different sporting activities. We aim to inspire and promote a wide range of sports for the future generation through workshops, taster sessions and visitors. We have been visited by Olympic athletes, taken part in workshops for archery, fencing and skipping as well as watching special assemblies such as a Karate demonstration. Currently, some classes are working with Watford FC coaches to enhance the children’s footballing skills.
At Bromet we also take part in Fitter Futures. By using Fitter Futures, the children have access to a fitness programme both in school and at home, completing workouts and personal challenges to improve their stamina, strength and coordination. Some of our children are even featured in the videos!
At Bromet we value the children’s opinions and want them involved in improving our curriculum. The Sports Squad is a group of children from KS2 that will be helping to improve PE at Bromet. By meeting regularly throughout the term, the children will discuss and plan ideas for how to make PE better within the school. Their jobs include: organising sporting events, reporting on competitions, finding out what sports children do outside school, planning new sports clubs and writing the sporting newsletter.
