·         determination

Swimming sessions take place in Y3 and Y4.


It is very important that children wear appropriate clothing for PE and sport. This helps promote safety and good hygiene, and enables children to feel comfortable and confident as they approach their work. All clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name. The appropriate kit is:


Indoor sessions – white t-shirt, blue/black shorts and plimsolls

Outdoor sessions – white t-shirt, blue/black shorts, blue/black tracksuit and trainers

Swimming – one part swimming costume and towel (baggy trunks and trunks below the knee are not permitted)

No jewellery, including watches, should be worn during PE and sport sessions. Long hair should be tied back for all PE and swimming sessions.




We offer a wide range of clubs for the children, and take children to sports festivals and tournaments. As a school, we encourage children to be physically active at lunch and break times, through adult and child led games, challenges and activities. Suitable footwear should be worn to allow children to participate in these activities.
