Physical Education & Sport
At Four Dwellings Primary Academy, we acknowledge that Physical Education (PE) and sport plays a unique and crucial role in the development and well-being of our children, laying the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and a life-long love of sport and physical activity.
We have a clear vision within our school which encompasses the 4D’s of Dream, Duty, Drive and Dazzle. Our PE and sport vision is no different and can be captured within the same ethos:
DREAM – our ambitions, our goals
We are ambitious for our children to achieve their dreams and aspirations through PE, sport and physical activity. These will be child-centred and bespoke to their individual needs but will also focus on, where appropriate, dreaming and aspiring to achieve as part of a team.
DUTY – our rules, our responsibilities
We will adopt the Spirit of the Games values of the School Games to promote personal excellence within our school and encourage our children to adhere to and demonstrate these at all times, reminding them that they have a responsibility to themselves, their peers, their team and their school.
To keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be.
To give 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
To treat others politely and with understanding at all times. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone and everything around you.
To be honest with others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
You’ve got to believe to achieve! Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
To treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each others’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
DRIVE – our determination to do our best
We encourage our children to try their very best at all times, fostering an attitude of always wanting to learn and achieve more and constantly striving for improvement, both individually and as part of a team.
DAZZLE – celebrating our successes, loving our learning
We strongly believe in fostering an attitude of enjoying the journey to achieving success, either personally or as part of a team, and acknowledging and celebrating achievement of these successes.
