The school also possesses a large playing field, which is used for a range of sports along with the hall in the Upper building. The school is proud to have gained the Activemark Gold for its provision in P.E. and Games. All the children participate in Sports Day on the school field, taking part in many different activities. There will be opportunities for as many children as possible to represent the school at various sporting tournaments and competitions in the local area.
For every child to experience high quality teaching and learning through the PE curriculum. To be active, engaged and challenged in their learning showing progression as well as developing leadership qualities and coaching skills.
