Our vision for sport

Our vision for the school is to see sport integrated across the curriculum, with healthy living being emphasised in lessons and encouraged outside of school. Every child deserves the opportunity to access sport in school and the chance to compete and represent their school. With this in mind we are now arranging more match fixtures than ever in a vast range of sports. 

Excellence in the teaching of sports is also key to our vision and as such we have a designated member of staff who runs sports enrichment at lunchtime and in the afternoons.

We aim to create a buzz around PE lessons and to increase participation in extra-curricular sports clubs run by the school and those in the local community. We strive to make our sports clubs inclusive, with all children taking great pride in representing their school and having fun. We would also like to increase the participation of parents within sports at the school, whether encouraging their child to take part in sport or offering to share their sporting skills. 

Projects and sports development

We have developed our inter house sports to give children from every year group the opportunity to play each other competitively throughout each term which helps to create enthusiasm and excitement related to sport. Our sports board located in the KS2 playground displays news, photos, fixtures and results.

Our School Council are very pro-active in supporting the school’s Physical Education vision. We have collaborated to create and issue whole school sports surveys to ensure that the pupil’s voices are heard.

We run an annual PE week in the summer, which includes sports day at Headley Drive and integrates sport into all lessons in some way. Our last sports week was a huge success with workshops and guest speakers throughout the week with the focus on disabled sports.
