PE, Sports & Physical Activity

As part of a healthy lifestyle, we encourage our pupils to take part in a wide range of physical activity.  This is provided through Physical Education lessons, competitive Sports and other physical activity.  As well as the obvious physical benefits of taking part in these activities, we also recognise and promote the  personal, social and emotional development opportunities sport can offer.

Sports' Day, June 2016

The weather was kind and the whole school enjoyed a fun morning of activities including novelty races, sprints and a toddler race. The parents and teachers also stepped up to compete in some extremely close-run sprints! 

A big thank you to Will Elstone from Class 6 whose  'Press Pass' allowed him access to the finish line where he captured these wonderful images.
