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. We follow the 'Get Set 4 PE' programme in school to ensure children are taught the necessary skills in all areas of PE: gross motor, gymnastics, dance and body movement including yoga, and games.
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 healthy competition!
We encourage all children to take part in the Daily Mile, as well as active learning within lessons, as a way of promoting additional physical activity in school.
