Provision of PE on the Curriculum

All years are timetabled for two hours of PE a week.  For Years 2 this includes a swimming session on Thursday mornings at the Dolphin Leisure Centre, where they are taught by qualified swimming instructors.

In the first half of the Autumn Term, while the weather is still good, PE usually consists of two outdoor lessons. This also applies to the second half of the Spring Term.

During the winter (November – February) each class has one indoor lesson and one outside lesson. We time table the hall space so that it is available should the weather be unsuitable for outdoor PE meaning that each class can still have two hours of PE each week.

Indoor PE lessons consist of movement lessons - a block of gymnastics and a block of dance. Outdoor PE lessons consist of teaching the skills of sending/ receiving and striking/fielding through a range of sports and activities; taking part in team games; and athletics.
