Games and gymnastics are taught by our specialist sports teacher, who also provides after school and holiday sports clubs to give children opportunities to develop their sporting interests further. In Key Stage 1, the children develop their spatial awareness; learn to control a ball with hands, feet and sticks and learn to perform a sequence of movements with control. Amongst the sports that children in Key Stage 2 learn about are football, basketball, hockey, tag rugby, tennis and athletics.
School teams take part in football, hockey and basketball tournaments. We also hold an annual inter-class football tournament. Our sports days combine the opportunity to compete in heats and finals with a team work ethos that values the contribution of all participants.
Dance is taught throughout the school, with most tuition being provided by a specialist dance teacher. Our after school dance group takes part in displays and competitions. Children in Year 3 attend swimming lessons.
School Sports funding has enabled us to purchase the services of the dance teacher; to increase the hours of our sports teacher; to make more indoor space available for PE by buying fold-up tables thus increasing the amount of time in which children are active; to buy more equipment and to subsidise trips to outdoor and adventurous activity venues.
