Physical Education and Games

We believe that PE is an important subject. Creating a positive attitude to PE promotes collaborative learning and a healthy lifestyle, which will continue into adulthood, irrespective of ability.

Nursery, Reception and Year 1 develop motor skills, spatial awareness and coordination resulting in a firm foundation of basic skills. As children move up the school, outdoor games (football in the winter and rounders, kwik cricket and athletics in the summer term) are introduced.

From Key Stage 2 the children swim weekly, with the main emphasis on technique development. Pupils participate in tag rugby, hockey, cross country, athletics, netball, basketball, badminton, tennis, football, rounders and cricket.

The children can achieve awards in various sports and represent the school at local, district, Regional and National Levels, including swimming galas and a variety of fixtures through the year, An annual whole school Sports Day is held at the Allianz Park to celebrate the year’s sport at Goodwyn.
