Junior School Sports & PE

Our main emphasis is on offering enjoyable, inclusive, and developmentally appropriate sports and physical activities that engage our young learners. Through these experiences, pupils will develop a diverse set of movement skills, as well as gain the confidence and enthusiasm to actively participate in a wide range of sporting games and activities.

We believe that mastering basic skills is crucial, as they serve as a foundation for lifelong engagement in sports and physical activities.

All pupils have three timetabled physical education lessons each week and additional sports and physical education opportunities are offered as part of the daily clubs and activities programme.
