Physical Education (PE)

Along with the Arts we place a special emphasis on PE and sport. We have a wide range of specialist coaches who visit school on a weekly basis to help children develop a high level of sporting skill.  These coaches include dance, cricket, football, athletics and gymnastics.  Each of these is followed up with an after school club should children wish to join. All aspects of the National Curriculum are covered, including swimming (Y5 children travel to Stocksbridge Swimming Pool).Great emphasis is placed on encouraging enjoyment, self-confidence, team spirit and co-operation and we have a half termly PE awards ceremony where each class and staff nominate children who have excelled at these skills during their recent work .  Throughout the year the school takes part in inter-school tournaments, often held at Penistone Grammar School, against other primary schools in our area.  These tournaments involve all year groups and different sports.
