Each year groups strives to achieve at least 2 hours of PE per week and most classes are offered After School clubs to keep pupils as active as possible.
During Years 3-6 and class 8 (KS2 support base), our children attend swimming lessons at Splash swimming baths in Stockton. This is to support the aim that all children are able to swim at least 25m unaided before leaving primary school.
Our school receives dedicated Sports premium money which is used to enhance PE provision within school. Our school uses it to fund transport to ensure pupils can take part in sporting competitions, specialist teaching in the build up to cluster tournaments and gymnastics, equipment and resources and membership of the local school sports partnership.
Children in all year groups are given opportunities to take part in inter-year group challenges (intra school sports).
Children in Key stage 1 are offered a KS1 sports festival to introduce them to a range of different activities during the Summer term. They are also invited to complete a Katie Morag trail at Preston Park.
Children in Key stage 2 are offered a range of festivals including tag rugby, football, basketball, netball, cricket and athletics. Our school promotes excellent sporting attitude and the pupils always take pride in their achievements.
Y5/6 pupils compete in the annual Tees Valley inter-school athletic competition at Middlesbrough Sports village. We have also entered the annual netball league again this year, which we have done for several years now. In past years, we have won the trophy several times now! More recently, we have entered a Y3/4 and Y5/6 football league!
Each year, we hold two sports days in July (whole school and Foundation stage). All pupils take part. The pupils are encouraged to enjoy the fun and challenge of team and individual physical activities. Our intention is that all pupils receive stickers and certificates for their participation and performance. Pupils from each class are also nominated for their excellent sporting attitude. These pupils receive medals in a sporting assembly.
During the past academic year the children have been enthusiastically engaged in a wide range of sporting activities. Our school recently achieved the School Games Gold award for outstanding Sporting achievement. We received a lovely plaque which will be placed at the entrance of our school with our other sporting plaques.
We provide a range of after school clubs for the pupils at our school. They range from football, netball, multi-skills and change for life. Pupils from years 1-6 and class 7 and 8 (support base classes) are invited to attend.
