We want all our children to be physically active and learn how to lead healthy lives which we hope they will take into their future lives. They are encouraged to take risks, work effectively in teams and learn how to win and lose.
Physical Education inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Follow the link to the 2014 National Curriculum for PE
Forest Schools is a Scandinavian initiative designed to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment. As a school we are very fortunate in having a fabulous outdoor environment and a teacher trained to deliver the Forest Schools programme.
Forest Schools is offered to our Reception and Y1 children and also the whole school through our House activities programme. Teamwork skills are developed through games and activities. Individual skills and self-esteem are heightened throughout activities such as trail following, shelter building, tool skills, lighting fires or environmental art, the list is endless. Each activity develops intra and inter-personal skills as well as practical and intellectual skills.
