Through our P.E. provision, our aim is that all children will be passionate about sport and have the skills they need to go on to lead healthy, active lifestyles both during their time at school and throughout their lives; Not only physically, but also mentally.
We aim to do this by engaging all children in a wide variety of sports to develop their physical skills in a range of situations, including agility, balance and co-ordination, as well as communication skills, teamwork, leadership, resilience, determination, the ability to think strategically in competitive situations, and to develop their self-belief and self-awareness.
At our Academy, we spend a minimum of 2 hours per week on curriculum P.E.
We also provide bespoke opportunities, such as outdoor adventurous activities and swimming. Within swimming, the aim is for children to leave Year 6 being able to swim competently and confidently over a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively [E.g. front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke], and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Across the academic year, there are a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for children to take part in, both at lunch time and after-school. Throughout the academic year, children have the opportunity to take part in competitions at both an intra- and inter-school level.
