Sports

The school employs a Sports Coach to provide a wide range of sporting activities for all ages across the school.

We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to our students physical and emotional development and health.  The physical education curriculum aims to increse students self confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.  Outdoor education is an integral part of physical education across the Key Stages.

  • To develop an ability to plan a range of movement sequences, organise equipment and apparatus, and begin to design and apply simple rules.
  • To develop an ability to remember, adapt and apply knowledge, practical skills and concepts in a variety of movement based activities.
  • To promote positive attitudes towards health hygiene and fitness.
  • To develop psyco-motor skills through a range of relevant movement based activities.
  • To develop a sense of fair play and sportmanship.
  • To develop communication skills, encouraging the use of correct terminology, to promote effective co-operation.
  • To foster enjoyment, and positive attitude to, the subject in school.
  • To enable students where possible to work towards independence and to communicate postitively towards others.
  • To give our students the opportunity to try new activities, develop new skills and grow in confidence.

We are also extremely lucky to have an outside bike track and a wide range of bikes accessible to all our pupils, which is used by students at playtimes and during certain lessons.  The benefits of cycling are:

Crucial for physical and mental health

Healthy Body

Fun way to exercise

Breathing and blood circulation

The digestive system and quality sleep

Trunk control and balance

Cognitive Development

Visual Percesption

Social acceptance

 

To enable PE to be accessible for all pupils including PMLD students many activities and sports are adapted, a program is in place across the school and the school pool is in constant use for hydrotherapy sessions.  We also look at developing physical wellbeing for students with PMLD, which include activities such as aromatherapy and didgeridoo therapy.

The school participates in a number of sporting competitions such as rounders and athletics against other schools as well and organising charity challenges.
