Our PE Curriculum and Facilities
Our broad PE curriculum provides the children with a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities and opportunities from cross country to gymnastics, dance or swimming. Our main aim in PE is to establish habits of fitness for life and to develop ‘multiskills’: skills in agility, balance and co-ordination. These skills form a strong foundation from which children can then specialise in sports of their choice at a later stage.
We are well equipped for PE, having all necessary basic small equipment. We also have the school hall which we use for gymnastics and dance, a large playing field and a hard-surfaced tennis court.
Throughout the school we organise specialist coaches to come and deliver a series of sessions in multiskills as well as in sports such as cricket, rugby, tennis, gymnastics and dance. These coaching sessions may be held during school time, or take the form of After School Clubs.
We have close ties with a local secondary school which frequently organises festivals and tournaments where we compete with other small rural Primary Schools. We also compete in other competitions organised by the County, such as Key Steps Gymnastics, Cross Country and Tennis. All of our children are given the opportunity, which they are keen to seize, to represent the school in various inter-school activities and competitions.
