At Sharrow School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in helping children lead healthy and active lives, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. All children have regular timetabled PE sessions totalling at least 2 hours per week.
The aims of our PE curriculum are to:
• Raise standards of all our children in Physical Education
• Ensure all our children have access to regular exercise
• Increase pupils’ participation in extra-curricular sport
In addition to their timetabled lessons, we offer the children lots of opportunities to take part in extra physical activities. Every day before school we have a breakfast club, which children can attend for free, with sports activities taking place in the hall. This includes basketball, skipping, hula hoops and ball skills. Most lunchtimes there are sports activities taking place in the hall for different year groups. We have at least six after school sports activities that children can join in with. You can find the timetable of activities on our ‘Clubs’ page on this website.
We also take part in many Sports festivals and competitions throughout the year. Have a look at our ‘Competitions and Festival’ page to find out what we have been doing.
Every year we have a whole school Sports Day. This takes place in school and in Mount Pleasant Park just outside school. This is an event that is enjoyed by all the children and their families.
