Physical Education (PE)
The skills of gymnastics, games and dance are taught and progressively developed throughout the whole school. In addition, at Key Stage 2, extra aspects of swimming, athletics and adventurous outdoor activities are also included in the PE curriculum.
All children are encouraged to evaluate and improve their own performance, to understand the importance of keeping fit and to take responsibility for working within the limits of safety. As well as promoting fitness, PE is important for the development of children’s self-discipline and social skills.
Children also have the opportunity to take part in extracurricular sports and dance clubs, enabling them to develop existing skills and try out new activities. The school is always pleased to hear from parents who have coaching skills and can spare the time to help with training.
