Pupils have two hours of PE timetabled per week through which we develop the six areas of activity as set out in the National Curriculum – Dance; Games; Gymnastics; Athletics; Outdoor and Adventurous activities; Swimming. We have a policy of employing highly qualified specialist coaches to ensure the highest standard of P.E. is delivered to the children who work alongside the teachers to create a wide range of rich, engaging and safe PE lessons. PE is an integral part of your child's development and we truly believe that sport and active development leads to a better quality of life whilst building the fundamentals of social interaction, communication and overall maturity.
Children in Upper Key Stage Two are given the opportunity to enjoy a three day adventure activity holiday at Derwent Hill O.A.A. centre, where they can experience a wide range of adventurous activities whilst developing their social and cultural skills.
The sports that we teach include; football, tag rugby, hockey, netball, basket ball, kwik-cricket, short tennis as well as athletics. We are passionate about introducing as many children to as many sports as possible as there is always a sport for everyone!
Throughout the school year, all pupils take part in a range of inter and extra-curricular activities and tournaments (including sports festivals) between year groups as well as other schools. We have lots of exciting tournaments within the region coming up in 2017-18 which the children will be able to access and we are determined to offer as many sporting places as we possibly can.
We really want all children to thrive in PE and sport and we love to see happy, healthy and enthusiastic children in our school!
We offer a range of sports after school clubs which you can find out more about from our school office.
Finally, if there are any particular queries regarding your child's particular year group, please use their year group page to find out what they are learning about each half term in PE.
