School Games Awards
Our school has been recognised by the School Games Programme for the dedication and ongoing commitment to PE and School Sport within our school community. We pride ourselves on providing a rich sporting environment within school which supports children outside of their core subjects.
The 2019/2020 award has been presented to school for our committed participation and engagement with the School Games Programme during the first two school terms, up until the suspension of the programme.
The virtual award has been presented to school to recognise the ongoing promotion of sport and physical activity during the period when school wasd forced to shut. We have set home based challenges, used social media to communicate with our families and children, and have engaged with the National School Sports Week (delivered by Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports).
Remember, stay fit, healthy and safe!

Return to PE for Whole School Re-Opening Guidance
Please see the attacheed document issued by the Association for Physical Education which provides guidance and support to schools and education providers regarding the return to PE lessons. This guidance identifies key barriers to PE provision and Coronavirus and also gives schools and teachers guidance on how PE and physical activity can take place as we plan to fully re-open in September.
As a school, we have identified key points from this guidance and will continue to plan and alter our current long term plan for PE to ensure that the subject can be delivered safely from September. We feel it is vital that young people engage in physical activity and continue to learn core physical skills which will enable them to develop as they progress through school.
