Sports Day

Every child takes part in a competitive Sports Day. In the morning, the school is vertically grouped using the house system. Pupils complete a number of challenges against the clock, accumulating team points. In the afternoon, every pupil competes in at least one track event during an athletics meeting and then the Year 5/6 children finish the day with a tug of war competition.

Future Developments

  • Continue to develop our extra-curricular opportunities, particularly focusing on Key stage 1.
  • To increase the amount of inter-school competition for Key Stage 1 pupils.
  • To employ a specialist PE teacher who will work alongside class teachers to up skill them, build confidence and assist with planning and delivering PE unit.
  • Continue to provide a wide range of opportunities for children to participate in all forms of sport.
