PE and Sport

Physical Education

Twelve units delivered per year (twenty-four per two-year cycle).

Two units are usually delivered per half term: one based on skills and games and one dance, gymnastics, or outdoor and adventurous activities. Dance is connected to the topic wherever possible. There are two one-hour P.E. lessons per week.

The units of work are taken from the Val Sabin Games, Gymnastics and Athletics scheme along with the I-Moves Dance scheme. In addition, all Year Four children attend a weekly swimming lesson at the Hillsborough Sports Centre once a week for 18 weeks.

Units cover all the requirements of the National Curriculum over the two-year cycle.

As we are a Healthy School we place a great emphasis on PE and sport. Most of our PE lessons are taught by Mr Kenworthy, Mrs Moseley and Mrs Morley. They introduce children to different aspects of PE such as dance, gymnastics and team games.

We are part of the Arches Sports Partnership and take part in many competitive events where we meet children from other local schools. 

We aim to offer a range of sports clubs after school including football, dance, basketball, 'learn to ride a bike' sessions and table tennis.  Some of these are run by staff and others are run by Arches coaches.  School is part of the cross country racing events which take place throughout Sheffield.  All of these clubs are offered with the aim of being inclusive of all children.
