We have a fully equipped hall, a playground and an astro turf area for P.E. sessions. Each class is time-tabled for two hour-long sessions a week; one in the hall and one outside. The teaching focuses on the four aspects of P.E.: acquiring and developing skills, selecting and applying skills, evaluating and improving skills, plus developing knowledge and understanding of fitness and health.
Infants and juniors work individually or with partners and practice mini-games. Social skills such as co-operation, taking turns and sportsmanship are encouraged. Swimming lessons take place at Bancroft School.
During year 5 the children attend Mill Rhythe where they complete a variety of outdoor adventurous activities and team building skills.
During Year 6 the children enjoy sailing sessions at Fairlop Waters. They also complete a canoeing course.
Children have the option of joining many Before and After School Clubs. Years 1-6 can choose from Netball, Football, Dance, Multi-skills and other activities. We enter many tournaments and competitions in Rugby, Football, Athletics, Rounders, Cricket and Netball.
We work closely with 'Premier Sports' who specialise in the teaching of P.E. They deliver lessons each week to the majority of year groups. They also run lots of our before and after school clubs.
In year 6, 88% of the children can:
swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
use a range of strokes effectively
perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
