We are proud of our PE provision and success: School Games Gold for the past 3 years! The pupils get to participate in a carefully thought out curriculum, which has been designed using the pupils' and parents' feedback, the understanding and knowledge of our dedicated PE coach and awareness of our local area. Being a Richmond school, close to the Thames and to the Twickenham rugby stadium, both swimming and rugby feature heavily!
Through lessons and after-school clubs, pupils participate in a wide range of sports: football, rugby, netball, basketball, judo, yoga, dance, boxing, gymnastics, tennis and swimming. Children from Yr3 - Yr6 receive swimming lessons at the local pool. In the academic year 2019/20, 93% of our Year 6 children could competently swim 25 metres, use a range of strokes and were able to demonstrate safe self-rescue in the water. This was an inline with the previous year.
Pupils are given the chance to play in many sports tournaments against local schools and in the borough league. We have a sport & healthy living week in the summer term and have attracted some sporting heroes who have visited our school, including Joe Wicks who led a whole school HIT session!
Please refer to the 2020/21 sports premium report below. You can read more about our PE provision on our PE curriculum page, here
Please note, from September 2020 we have had to re-consider how we organise our PE lessons. For the autumn term the children will not be swimming, they will not take part in tournaments against other schools or clubs and we will not be playing contact sports in lessons or playtimes. This is part of our coronavirus health and safety risk assessment and is under constant review.
We are fortunate that we have a very large outdoor space upon which our children can play and learn many other sports during this time. If you have any questions please contact our PE lead, Mr Penberthy.
