As a school we celebrate P.E. in all forms and we aim to motivate and encourage all our children to take responsibility for their own health and life long lifestyle choices. Across the school we recognise the importance of providing a wide variety of sporting skills so that all children enjoy the P.E. curriculum. Three times a week, all KS2 children run a mile to improve their fitness and stamina. Children learn a range of traditional team sports such as hockey, tag rugby, netball, dance, golf, cricket, tennis and gymnastics.
Many of our children represent the school and other external clubs at a wide range of sporting events and competitions, which are celebrated in weekly assemblies. We do not have set teams but encourage all children to participate and represent the school. All children participate in an annual competitive sports day, which parents attend, where teams compete for the school House cup. Year 6 House Captains are used as active role models to help lead the KS1 and KS2 sports day.
We have invested our sports premium money into a range of resources to enhance the children's learning, which includes specialist sports teachers leading lessons alongside teachers. Furthermore, staff have received specialist training on the new P.E. curriculum which focuses on skills and skill application within sports.
