Physical Education

We aim to develop agility, co-ordination, fitness, physical self awareness and confidence through PE. All classes from Y1 have 2 sessions of PE per week.  We encourage a competitive spirit but recognise the value of team work, co-operation and fair play. Pupils participate in a range of competitive team sports at Tower Hamlets sports festivals. Some aspects of the PE curriculum are provided by sports specialists from Schools Sport Partnerships and consultant PE specialist coaches. This is extended though our range of after school clubs i.e. baseball, netball, cricket, fencing. The school promotes participation and enjoyment for all. 

 

Pupils in Years 4 and 5 have weekly swimming lessons at York Hall. Girls are required to wear a 1 piece swimming costume and boys wear swimming trunks.  All children are required to wear swimming hats.

 

Children must have a change of PE kit in school every day ready for PE. Plimsolls or trainers should be worn as necessary gymnastics and dance will be barefoot. No jewellery or scarves should be worn for PE.  Hair should be tied back.
