Physical Education

We are very proud of our sporting achievements, which stem from good quality PE provision. Every pupil receives two hours of PE within the curriculum each week and the whole school takes part in a daily ten-minute exercise. In PE lessons, pupils are taught a wide range of skills, including: running, jumping, throwing and catching; balance, control, flexibility, agility and co-ordination. Pupils are taught all aspects of PE, such as competitive team games, gymnastics, dance, swimming, athletics and outdoor/adventurous activities. Pupils learn to apply basic principles and rules when taking part in sporting activities. We invite people in to school to work with our pupils, such as sports coaches and a local athlete who has competed in the Invictus Games. There is an after school sports club every Thursday from 3:15pm to 4:15pm where the pupils can take part in activities such as tag rugby, football, tennis and multi-skills (activities vary throughout the year). We are an active member of the Northallerton School Sports Partnership and take part in lots of sporting events. As a result of our sporting provision, we have achieved the School Games Gold Award.
