Physical Education Provision
PE is a very important part of learning and children become more confident using gross motor skills. By the end of their time in Reception class, they will have good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. Children will be able to use various pieces of apparatus. Pupils have 1 taught PE lesson inside focusing on control and co-ordination. Pupils have continual access to the our bespoke EYFS climbing frame, bikes scooters, balls, and large building blocks.
Key Stage One
We encourage and motivate all children to participate during the sessions and we offer a broad curriculum to enable all children to feel motivated and comfortable in all areas of P.E. These including dance, gymnastics, ball skills and a continuation focus on coordination and teamwork.
Key Stage Two
KS2 pupils follow an annual cycle which ensures they have one session of dance or gymnastics and one session of field sports or swimming.
Swimming is taught to pupils in Year 5 and 6 at Biggin Hill Swimming Pool.
KS2 pupils have wider opportunities to attend competitive events and tournaments outside school. The school has a very good relationship with the Sevenoaks Schools Partnership, who provide us with an events calendar and competitions. In the two summer terms KS2 are able to take part in Athletics club which is held on our extensive playing fields. Every term all children in KS1 and KS2 take part in the Sevenoaks Schools Partnership Intra competitions with a wide range of events, from speed stacking to skipping.We also have termly inter-house events, which are run by house captains in conjunction with our P.E. Leader, Mrs Andrews. These events are chosen to complement the sports provision in lessons, providing children, who would necessarily choose to be part of an externally competing school team, a chance to experience competitive play in school.
