PE is delivered by a Specialist Sports lead using the Val Sabin Schemes of work for Games, Gymnastics and Dance.  We also practise athletics skills and outdoor adventure skills as part of the curriculum.  Pupils focus on mastering basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. Pupils are encouraged to participate in team games and to develop simple tactics for being an effective team member. All of our pupils will engage in lessons inside and outside school, involving visits to other facilities as part of our local schools sports partnership.  We ensure wider participation in the community by involvement in interschool sports and tournaments, local authority and wider competitions. Sporting achievements are celebrated in our annual Sports Day. Swimming is introduced to the timetable from Key Stage 2.
