Physical development and education are essential to improve the future health of our children.
The Sports and PE curriculum begins in Reception with the development of motor skills and movement. Through Key Stage 1 skills are developed and refined through weekly sessions and from Year 3 competitive games and team sports form part of the curriculum.
Extra-curricular sports clubs are offered for seasonal sports: football, netball and rugby in the Autumn and Spring terms and tennis, rounders, cricket and athletics in the Summer term.
Dance and gymnastics are offered as clubs and as part of the curriculum for all pupils.
To promote fitness and physical development, Challenge Days in September and April enable pupils to measure personal bests during physical tasks, set themselves targets and reflect on physical development.
