We see the physical development of all our children as important in the education of the whole child and therefore place great importance on PE and Games. As such all children spend 2 hours a week on physical activities.Children work co-operatively and competitively in a range of physical activities. These include dance, gymnastics, team games, ball skills, football, netball, hockey, athletics, running, swimming, cricket and rounders.
All children in Key Stage 2 attend swimming lessons at the Westgate Centre The school organises friendly matches with other schools in football and netball and participates in tournaments/inter school competitions in football, netball, hockey, cricket, cross country running and athletics. The school organises Sports Days for both Key Stages in the Summer term, to which all parents are invited.
The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme which was launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark. We as a school decided we wanted to apply and achieve the Sliver Award this year. Using last year's success in sport, we are really pleased to say we have been awarded the Sliver Kitemark Award.
