“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back” Mia Hamm (award-winning professional football player)
We have a specialist PE teacher that teaches each class across the school, twice a week for an hour.
All children are encouraged to be physically active and take part in sporting activities. We concentrate on enjoyment and participation. The children are encouraged to be competitive in a club situation and during inter-school activities. School teams are involved in local sport festivals in the Orton cluster and other Peterborough based competitions.
As part of the National Curriculum we encourage all children to learn to swim and Year 3-6 take swimming lessons at Jack Hunt pool for one term each year.
In addition to this, we hold an annual sports’ day event for both Key Stages and over the last few years we have offered activity days during our annual Health Week. This offers the chance for children to participate in new and challenging outdoor education activities such as climbing and archery.
Children will have PE on the following days:
- Reception = Monday and Tuesday.
- Year 1 = Monday and Tuesday.
- Year 2 = Tuesday and Thursday.
- Year 3 = Monday and Tuesday.
- Year 4 = Tuesday and Friday.
- Year 5 = Thursday and Friday.
- Year 6 = Thursday and Friday.
Our school also runs a range of extra curricular activities each year for a variety of different sports in both Key Stages to encourage a love of sport. For more information on this click on the link at the bottom of this page.
