Our Curriculum – Physical Education
“Massive Minds, Huge Hearts, Guided by God”
PE is believed to be a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced PE curriculum is planned to provide for pupil’s increasing self confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.
In PE the emphasis in each lesson is on the acquisition of skills and improvement in performance. The school has good facilities for both indoor and outdoor sport with ample equipment to provide good quality PE lessons.
All children in KS1 and KS2 have two hours of PE per week. This good level of sport has helped the school achieve the Active Playground Award.
KS2 classes take part in swimming lessons on a rota basis throughout each academic year. We aim to have all children confident and happy in the water with many swimming at least 25 metres by the time they transfer to High School.
Please note that we do expect all children to wear PE kit (see uniform section). We also insist that children place importance on their safety and that of others. Therefore no jewellery is permitted to be worn during any PE or swimming session. It is advised that all jewellery is removed at home on the day of your child’s PE lesson.
We actively support inter-schools competitions in the Beccles Partnership and are keen to compete in a variety of different competitions.
