Physical Education

Physical Education

We have lots of fun competing in several competitions throughout the year, these range from the Dance Umbrella, football, Quad Kids and Cross Country. We also enjoy lots of sporting events in school.

PE lessons are mostly led by professional sports coaches through Premier Sports. They work closely with our class teachers to ensure that our PE lessons are challenging, engaging, exciting and develop our children to be fit, healthy and enjoy a range of sports. In addition to our PE lessons, all pupils take part in a Daily Mile. Key Stage 2 pupils are also taught swimming throughout the academic year.

We believe a high quality physical education inspires and motivates all pupils to excel in competitive sport and provide many opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident, thus supporting their health, fitness and mental wellbeing.

The National curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

 Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
 Are physically active for sustained periods of time
 Engage in competitive sports and activities
 Lead healthy, active lives.
