PE and Games

The children have regular PE lessons and a well-equipped gymnasium gives the children opportunity to develop physical skills. The extensive playing field also allows children of all ages to participate in outdoor games, which in the Junior years become more structured. Junior children have the opportunity to experience a variety of game skills including football, netball, hockey, kwik cricket, rugby and rounders. A balanced programme of dance, gym and games is designed to be both physically and mentally demanding.

There are separate Sports Days for Junior, Infant and Nursery children, held during the Summer term, to which parents are invited. These are essentially fun events in which we expect all the children to participate and to do their best.

Teams in football, rugby, netball, athletics and rounders are run as extra curricular activities. Years 3 to 6 have swimming lessons at Yate Leisure Centre. (We encourage children to enter for the various swimming award schemes.) Our main aim is to ensure that all children become competent and safe in the water.
