Physical Education (PE) and Games

PE is an important and well supported subject within the school curriculum. Creating a positive attitude to PE promotes enthusiasm, success and a healthy lifestyle that will continue into adulthood, irrespective of ability.

SportNursery, lower and upper kindergarten have two indoor sessions a week, one for ball skills and one for gymnastics. The major objectives within these year groups are to develop motor skills and enjoyment and to establish a firm foundation of basic skills which can be built upon as the child moves up the school. The children also participate in activities that promote spatial awareness and co-ordination.

As the children move into transition one indoor lesson is replaced with outdoor games; football, hockey and tag rugby in the winter and rounders, kwik cricket and athletics in the summer term. We are fortunate to have full access to the playing fileds across hammers lane for games and the grass athletics track in the summer term.

At Key Stage Two the children have three weekly PE lessons; games, swimming and gymnastics. Swimming takes place at Copthall Pool with the main emphasis on technique development. In the other activities, skills acquired in the earlier years are reinforced and progression is made to more difficult exercises using a wider range of equipment. Pupils participate in football, hockey, cross country, athletics, rounders, netball, basketball, badminton, tennis and continue tto participate in hockey, tag rugby and football. Hendon Sports Centre is the venue for indoor games and gymnastics lessons.

There is a Key Stage Two Swimming Gala at Copthall Pool each year and an annual whole school Sports Day is held at Copthall Stadium.

The children can achieve awards in various sports and represent the school at local, district, regional and national levels.
