We give high priority to PE activities, recognising their worth for improving and developing ability skills, team work, confidence, independence and resilience. The children are taught to work on their own, with a partner and in a team.
Being offered these experiences allows children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way that supports their health, fitness and well-being.
All classes participate in both indoor and outdoor PE. KS1 children are able to master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. They participate in team games, developing tactics for attacking and defending and can perform dances using simple movement patterns. KS2 children will develop these skills and demonstrate improvements to achieve their personal best. They will take part in outdoor activity challenges.
Throughout the year, we offer a variety of after-school activities including netball, cricket, golf and football. We also value inter-school matches to aid competition!
We are proud to have achieved the ‘FA Charter’ award for football - our coach is Mr R Welbourne - and the ActiveMark verifying our commitment to physical education. Children enjoy taking part in team colour lunchtime football competitions as well as inter-school competitions through the POSH coaching team.
