Physical Education

We have two specialist PE teachers that teach each class across the school, twice a week for an hour. During these sessions a P.E. kit must be worn so your child can take part safely and effectively.

A correct PE kit should include:

- Blue or black sports trousers and shorts (weather dependent)

- Plain white T-shirt / polo shirt

- Blue of black Tracksuit jacket or jumper

- A long sleeved base layer to wear under PE t shirt in the cold weather.

- Trainers.

- Hair bobble (for long hair).

For Health and Safety reasons children should not wear jewellery on PE days, therefore earrings are to be removed.

If ears have been pierced less than 6 weeks, tape must be provided. These rules must be adhered to for safety reasons. Any long hair must also be tied up.

All children are encouraged to be physically active and take part in sporting activities, during which we concentrate on enjoyment and participation. Additionally, children are encouraged to be competitive in a club situation, intra-school house competitions 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 children in Key Stage 2 take swimming lessons at the regional pool for at least one half 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.

Our school runs a range of extra curricular activities each year for a variety of different sports in both Key Stages.  This is to encourage a love of sport.
