PE and sports activities encourage children to develop physical skills, fitness and an understanding of the importance of a healthy life-style. The School hall is equipped for gymnastics, traditional games, dance and movement. Children are expected to wear their PE kit for each PE lesson. All children take part in team sports such as cricket, netball, football and rounders. Children are encouraged to develop a healthy attitude towards competitiveness. The experience of winning and losing is regarded as an important aspect of every child’s emotional, personal and social development. Sports Day is an enjoyable and important event on the school calendar.
It is a requirement of the National Curriculum that all primary school children are taught to swim. Children aged between eight and nine have a weekly swimming lesson at a local swimming pool. They are taught how to swim and how to be safe in the water.
Our top-up sports funding enables the school to invest in additional sports specialist coaching and also enables teaching staff to have access to local CPD (continuous professional development).
