Physical Education

The aim of physical education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Children take part in games, gymnastic movement, dance and athletic activities using indoor and outdoor environments where appropriate. They can take part in after school clubs and have the opportunity to compete against other schools. Children have swimming lessons in Year Three at New Parks Swimming Pool. The cost of lessons and transport is subsidised by the school.

The school organises Sports Days for all children. We have links with Leicester Tigers and Leicester Riders, who provide coaching for pupils during PE lessons and provide our teachers with support to teach basketball and rugby skills to our pupils.
