We teach a broad range of Physical Education activities with a focus on participation and progression across the school. Please see the ‘Curriculum Map’ for the breakdown of genres across the school.
Years 3, 4 and 5 have one term of swimming lessons at Archway Pool with professional swimming coaches. This ensures that children will have three terms of swimming throughout their time at primary school. Children should be able to swim at least one full length and we aim for them to be confident swimmers by Year 5.
By far the most popular sport in the school; we have a wide variety of offerings, both in and out of school hours. These include:
- Brazilian Football – A specialist coach who comes in to run P.E. sessions for years 2-6. This is skill based learning focusing on control and coordination.
- Arsenal in the community – We offer children in need of extra Literacy support the Double Club through all the school holidays. They spend time in the classroom followed by an hour of football, everyday for a week. This includes training and inter-school competitions. We also run a languages double club with a focus on German one evening after school in the summer term.
- After school training sessions – We have weekly sessions for boys in Years 5 and 6 on Wednesdays and Thursdays and weekly for girls in Years 5 and 6 on Fridays.
- Training from Arsenal coaches – We have Arsenal coaches who are on their gap year coming in to run P.E. sessions for Year 5. They are completing Foundation Degree Programmes in Football and Community Coaching.
After-School and Lunch Clubs
This is an introduction to the genre of dance. Children work on flexibility, coordination, fitness and basic timing. They work in groups, building their team work skills.
KS2 Street Dance
We run a weekly after school street dance club for children in Years 5 and 6. This focuses on flexibility, fitness and performance. The children work as a team to prepare performances for the big events throughout the academic year.
During the autumn and spring term we run a weekly after school club for KS2.
During the Autumn term we offer a weekly Badminton club after school for Years 3 and 4.
