We make excellent provision for the children to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. We provide opportunities for these skills to be improved through a range of units such as; the teaching of dance, tennis, hockey, athletics and gymnastics. Children are given the opportunity to engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities which become increasingly challenging as they move through the school. Teachers provide the children time within sessions to review and reflect upon their leaning to allow them to have more ownership of their learning and next steps. We have the use of a large playing field in the summer months to develop the children’s skills in different surroundings. We also hold an annual competitive sports day. Additionally we employ a PE coach to provide more provision each week as part of the school day and as a play leader at lunchtimes.
We are very fortunate to have a swimming pool on site, which gives Year 1 and Year 2 children the opportunity to have regular swimming lessons taught by a trained instructor.
We aim for all children to enjoy being in the water and to be able to swim by the end of Key Stage 1.
