Primary School

Sports and P.E.

We believe sport is important in school and in life. Please see our Sports Day video below. As well as enjoyment and contributing towards a healthy lifestyle, sport teaches us how to win and more importantly how to lose. In life, we will all have moments where we feel like winners and other times like we have lost.

Sport plays an important role in helping children become robust learners that know how to react when things do not go to plan, and how to support others to succeed. Industry and Commerce tell schools that education has to prepare children for a job market that needs flexibility and diverse skills. Sport helps us to do that. 

The school swimming pool aids our quest to keep all children happy and safe in water. (See separate page.)

Our Sports Days are a real community experience that parents, grandparents and pupils enjoy.

Our commitment to sport has been recognised by us achieving the Gold School Games Mark year after year.   Your School Games - School Games Mark

Please send your child in to school in PE kit on their PE day. This will mean that we have more time for sport. For children in Foundation (Puffins and Penguins) they will keep their PE kit in school and should come to school in uniform as normal.

*Please note that for the second half of the Summer Term, swimming sessions will replace the PE days, but children should continue to come to school in their PE kit on their swimming days.
