No jewellery of any form is allowed during PE lessons
One of the aims of the school is to encourage participation in a variety of physical activities. Children go swimming for half the year in Years 3 and 5.
In KS1 there have been opportunities to participate in P E lessons held by sports specialists and coaches from Swanshurst and Bishop Challoner Schools. This has come about through the liaison of our PE co-ordinator with a network of primary and secondary school families whose aim is to facilitate the provision of extra PE in the form of after school clubs and tournaments. These opportunities vary throughout the course of the year and parents are informed of any such provision in the future as it affects certain age groups.
The school has recently been awarded ‘Healthy Schools’ status, which covers all aspects of a child’s health: emotional, social, physical and mental health. We have also achieved the Bronze Level of ECO schools and are hoping to achieve Silver during the course of this year. This means we are improving the sustainability of the school by reducing waste and recycling where possible.
We regularly take part in initiatives, which have enabled us to purchase additional equipment for sports and other activities.
