All children take part in dance, games and gymnastics activities at a level to develop their skills, confidence and enjoyment in the tasks as part of a healthy lifestyle. The school designs it’s PE curriculum around the ‘FUNS scheme’ materials, which concentrates on basic skills development around a number of sporting activities as well as the development of core strengthening and flexibility movements. External coaches from R&R Sports visit the school weekly to enhance and expand the skills taught in school and work with every class to teach the children a variety of games skills and cooperative games.
We use large and small apparatus in the hall and playground. For PE, children are expected to get themselves changed into shorts and tee-shirt with trainers and long sleeved top and trousers for outside games or bare feet for dance and gym. Long hair is tied back and all jewellery removed (by the child if they are able to or by their parent/carer before they come into school). Stud earrings must be covered with surgical tape.
All items of clothing must be clearly named. All PE kits are sent home regularly to be washed (holiday periods) to keep them fresh and to check items still fit (e.g. trainers). PE. kits should be kept in school at all times during the school week.
