PE Update

During the summer term, we are trial running a new system. Year 1-6, will be completing our normal PE lessons (which was originally once a week) to running these fortnightly. Therefore, the children will now have a whole afternoon of PE every two weeks. In addition, due to the weather getting warmer over the coming weeks. Year 1-6 will also have an extra PE lesson every week, like they previously did during the Autumn term to increase participation in sport and physical activity.

As part of our broad and balanced curriculum, our sporting provision encourages children to become independent, determined and resilient learners.  We are encouraging children to be healthy and active and to develop a lifelong sporting passion. This is all promoted through our successful PE curriculum, which is taught by our dedicated Sports Teacher. We offer the chance to participate in lunchtime and after school clubs and for KS2 to take part in inter-school competitions.

Throughout these weekly and fortnightly PE lessons children will be be active and improve their mental and physical well-being. An action-packed annual Sports Week is also held to fully immerse children in a variety of sports. Our extended PE opportunities gives pupils the chance to create lasting memories and inspire them to take part in, and spectate, a wider range of sports. We view sport as a tool to boost children’s confidence and break down barriers. It encourages teamwork, class togetherness and morale.
