Physical Education and sport is an important and fundamental aspect of a child’s development.
The school programme includes the teaching of skills with or without small apparatus, the use of large climbing and jumping equipment and activities, in preparation for games at a later stage. Dance is also a subject that is popular with many children; it develops their co-ordination and self-confidence. The children may learn country dancing as well as experimenting with other types of movement such as disco dancing.
The safety aspect of such work is strongly emphasised. Long hair must be tied back and no earrings may be worn for any PE lesson. We have a Sports Day once a year, with an emphasis on enjoyment and a bit of healthy competition.
We provide extra-curricular clubs to enhance the enjoyment of PE and sport. These include football, dance and gymnastics.
