We recognise the importance of sport at school, both as a means of challenging individual effort and perseverance, but also to create teamwork and social skills. Recognising children’s individuality, we try to provide a range of sporting activities to suit all interests.
In school we address these areas throughout all aspects of the school day:
Stay and Play provision at the start and end of the school day
All of the Stay and Play staff have received training from external sports coaches to provide a range of multi-sports activities.
PE sessions are taught by experienced, specialist coaches. A strong relationship is built up between the school and coach so that children’s needs are met.
Children have access to a range of equipment during break times. During the summer months, the school field is used in order to increase the range of sports on offer.
We use the power of sport to provide specific skills interventions for targeted groups of children. A SHIELD coach works in school every week with groups of children from both KS1 and KS2.
Extra-Curricular School Clubs
Clubs change during the year, but have recently included football, tag rugby, basketball, rounders, athletics
Inter School Activities
The school has taken part in inter school festivals, hosted by the local secondary school.
Teams have also participated in inter school competitions in both football and basketball.
