PE and sporting activities


Pupils have two hours of high quality PE timetabled per week through which we develop the six areas of activity, as set out in the National Curriculum: dance, games, gymnastics, athletics, outdoor and adventurous activities and swimming. Children are given the opportunity to swim during years 3 and 4 and we aim for all pupils leaving the school to be able to swim at least 25m. Year 6 pupils go on a residential activity week, where they take part in many outdoor and adventurous activities that a primary school cannot easily provide. They also have the opportunity to complete the National Cycling Proficiency scheme.
All children are provided with the opportunity to attend a variety of after school sports clubs and represent the school at a competitive level.

The government provides school with £8810 of funding to support our work on PE, sports and physical activity. Here are the reports as to how we have spent the funding and its impact for our children.
