Throughout the course of the year the children will participate in at least two hours of physical education a week and will take part in a range of activities including gymnastics, dance, athletics, swimming and games.
Our school aims to encourage children to take part in a wide variety of sporting activities, on a regular basis, as part of a healthy lifestyle. They are given opportunities to work both independently and as part of a group or team. This allows for the teaching of winning and losing with grace and dignity.
A number of after school clubs are available to children from all ages that are run by our own staff and professional coaches, including Premier Sport who run some of the PE lessons for Reception to Year 6. Children are also given the opportunity to participate in competitive sporting events involving a number of other schools from the local area.
All pupils are able to take part in swimming activities. Currently Years 5 and 6 make use of Fore Street Baths and the school pool is used for the whole of the Summer Term mainly for Years 1, 2, 3 and 4.
For reasons of safety and hygiene, children will be expected to have bare feet for gymnastics and dance (taking shoes to the hall in case of fire). Children need to wear suitable PE clothing – black shorts and plain T-shirts, red of white; tracksuit bottoms in winter and trainers or plimsolls for outdoor PE. Children will be expected to participate in all PE lessons unless a note is received from parents. Please encourage your child to take responsibility for their own PE clothing and ensure it is in school at all times.
