Effective, enjoyable, and inclusive Physical Education is at the heart of an outstanding curriculum, that develops healthy bodies and minds. We view PE and Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) as cornerstones of our pupils’ learning. Exercise for all at the start of the school day, leadership training for our oldest pupils, physical activity embedded within outdoor learning, and extra curricular clubs and tournaments for our least active, our most competitive and for those ‘testing the water’ - these all enhance our comprehensively taught PE curriculum.
As small, rural schools, participation in extra curricular sports festivals and tournaments are essential opportunities for our pupils to expand their horizons, to meet and mix with peers, and to take part in ‘big’ events. Thanks to supportive staff and parents, and the School Sports Funding, we have increased our participation year-on-year for the last six years, evidenced by an increase in the number of extra-curricular sports clubs that we sustain and the events that we attend.
Our commitment to delivering outstanding PE is evident in our Gold School Sports Kitemark.
A Gold Kitemark in our sports provision recognises our inclusive, encouraging, accessible and challenging curriculum and extra curriculum sports. Much of the credit for this achievement goes to our Year Six ‘Young Leaders’. They run their own weekly lunchtime ‘Fun Club’ for all of Keystage Two, as well as planning and delivering house tournaments across the year, with adult support. They go from strength to strength.
