Physical Education

Curriculum Overview

The school employs two PE coaches and instructors. Mr Nick James and Ms Jo Creese.

In the Early Years PE work mainly involves physical development as defined in the early learning goals. Ms Jo Creese does extensive work around gymnastics and dance. At this age a lot of work involves building up upper body strength. the Nursery and Reception classes have extensive play equipment designed with this in mind. In October 2016 the Key Stage 1 playground upgrade will be completed and new equipment installed specifically for infants.

The school offers a wide range of sports including:

Gymnastics, dance, cricket, hockey, basketball, football. athletics, rounders, tag rugby and cycle training for Years 5 and 6.
