We give the children a broad and balanced curriculum of physical activities including gymnastics, dance, athletics, games and swimming. Many extra-curricular activities are also available. We aim to make sport enjoyable and accessible to all children regardless of ability and gender. We aim to provide two hours of curriculum PE a week but we also use other non-subject times to develop general fitness. We are using the additional funding from the Government allocated to schools as part of the Olympic Legacy by employing a Specialist Sports Company, 'Onside Coaching', to teach one hour of PE or Forest School to pupils in Years 1 to 6.
We aim to provide a term of swimming for years 3, 4 & 5. Pupils in Year 6 who cannot swim 25m will accompany the Year 5 pupils in the Summer Term. The lessons take place under the guidance of qualified instructors. The children also learn about safety in the water. We ask parents for voluntary contributions to fund transportation to the pool.
In addition there are several opportunities for outdoor adventure type activities, notably an annual residential trip to a recognised activity centre for years 5 and 6 and we offer a range of physical activity clubs as well including netball, football and various dance clubs. Please see Enrichment Activities and the School Clubs sections for additional information.
