PE is taught as a discreetly timetabled subject. In EYFS, children have one dedicated weekly PE lesson. In KS1 and KS2, children have two hour-long lessons.
PE topics are planned so that classes will focus on two key strands of the PE curriculum per term. This is influenced by the many sporting and performance opportunities, ensuring our children have spent time in lessons learning the skills that will help them best succeed in sporting teams and competitions.
In KS1 the focus is on developing the foundational skills needed to play a range of sports. As children move in to KS2 they continue to develop these skills, whilst also applying them to a range of different sports and activities.
PE lessons are taught by the class teacher, with some visiting specialists where possible. Curriculum PE is lead by Miss Margey.
The school is taking part in an even wider variety of sporting activities this year, from Rapid Cricket, Gaelic Football, Quicksticks hockey and circus skills! We continue to support the daily mile run. Do check out our termly newsletter written by the sports ambassadors for details.

Last year 2018/2019 we archived a GOLD School Games Mark
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
With a total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible. As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year
