In Reception, children follow the Foundation Stage which is designed to improve their physical development.
During Key Stage 1 (Yrs1&2), children are encouraged to explore and apply basic skills, actions and ideas through dance, games and gymnastics activities.
In KS 2 (Yrs3-6), children build on and extend their skills, and swimming, water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities are introduced. The children are engaged in a programme which allows for progress throughout their first years at school and provides experiences and challenges which help to develop control, quality, tactics and compositional ideas, fitness and health.
Coaching sessions in cricket, judo, rugby and football have a proved a great success as have sponsored events e.g. jump rope for heart. These have given children the opportunity to watch and work with and learn from professionals who pass on their enthusiasm and enjoyment of sports and help the children to become physically confident.
