Look around our school

Physical Education

Children in the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception classes) follow a programme of activities, both indoors and outside, to provide experiences to develop motor skills and physical development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance. On entering KS1, children will follow the PE National Curriculum Programme of Study. All children take part in PE lessons unless there is a medical reason why they should not do so. If your child is to be excused from PE please put the reason in writing or mention it to the class teacher.

Our aim is that every child will experience success and grow to recognise that taking part in sport and physical activity is of great personal value. All children are taught skills applicable to a variety of team games such as football, netball and rounders. Children from Year 2 onwards have the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons. We concentrate on trying to teach as many children as possible to swim rather than developing further skills with capable swimmers.

After school activities are led by both teachers and qualified coaches who offer a variety of games skills and sports.
