Physical Education

We promote an ‘active’ attitude amongst the children, where all pupils develop a keen interest in sport and are willing to partake in sporting activities.

We provide a variety of engaging lessons delivered by school staff and external bodies; deploy a wide range of teaching strategies and enter a good selection of competitions for the children across both key stages. By doing this, the pupils further develop their confidence and self-esteem when they are accessing P.E. lessons and when they are representing the school in sporting competitions.

Our pupils participate in a wide variety of sports, from curling to gymnastics, and basketball to rugby.  We work to provide opportunities for pupils to experience as many sports as possible.

Our pupils develop their knowledge and understanding of a wide range of sports, equipping them with the skills they need to access sporting activities.  Our physical education lessons provide opportunities for children to listen to peers, lead others and develop their own games including scoring systems. These skills, which are developed in PE, are important life skills that children will need in adult life, including the encouragement to be the best that they can be.

Our Key Stage 2 residential also provides pupils with the opportunity to experience canoeing, climbing, orienteering and ghyl scrambling.

In 2022 we were delighted to receive The Platinum Award in recognition of our commitment to maintain consistently high standards with our school sport provision.  We are very proud of our pupils and staff for showing such enthusiasm, commitment and continued dedication to all aspects of school sport and exercise.  We believe it is a fantastic achievement and reflects the standard and variety of school sport and healthy lifestyles undertaken throughout the year.

In summary we encourage children to participate in physical activity that is fun, engaging and purposeful. We want children to take responsibility for their own fitness and health and enjoy being active. We ensure children are equipped with the skills to grow up to live happy and healthy lives, utilising knowledge and skills taught and developed through PE.
