At Nechell’s primary school we follow the proven model of long term athletic development. Our first phase of physical literacy is introducing pupils to fundamental stages of movement, this includes enhancing a pupils balance, co-ordination, agility and speed.
As a pupil moves through the key stages they will be challenged on decision making and a basic understanding of well recognised invasion games.
