PE and Sports Funding
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
- are physically active for sustained periods of time.
- engage in competitive sports and activities.
- lead healthy, active lives.
Home Sports Week
During these times, there have been a few changes to our usual sport calender; for example, we would be having our Sports Day next week! To keep things as normal as possible (and to still have a bit fo competition!), we will be hold a Sports Week at school and invite children at home to participate as well.
There will be different events for you to complete and depending on your result, you can be awarded Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum! There will also be special certificates for those of you who are outstanding in certain events.
More information has been sent out on ParentMail, and I have also attached the document below. Please send completed forms and pictures to email@example.com to Miss West (by Friday 10th July), so I can complete certificates and result tables.

Year 5 and 6 have attended two Swimming Galas this term. We had a friendly meet at Bournemouth Collegiate Prep School to practise our strokes in their swimming pool. This was great fun, as we were able to develop our skills and see other schools swimming. We also had the main event at Canford where we competed for the East Dorset County Final. We all swam amazingly well and no one got disqualified in their round.
A special well done to Olivia, who qualified for the final in backstroke.
On Friday 31st January, 9 Year 5 children attended a Dance Festival at Poole High School. We had a great afternoon, where we learnt a dance in the style of a Linha Curva. Year 11 students taught us the start of the routine and then we worked with 3 of them to create our own dance. We then watched the other schools perform their and they we showed them ours.
