PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORT AT ST SWITHUN'S
The subject leader for PE and Sports is Miss H Ranson
PE and Sport play an important part in the life of our children and at least two, one hour sessions per week are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.
The National Curriculum for physical education will “inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport”.
Through Inter-school competitions, organised by the Bassetlaw School Games Organiser ,the children at St Swithun's have the opportunity to participate in a range of competitive sports and clubs. These include: multi-skills, Handball, Hockey, Basketball, Lacross, Boccia, High 5s Netball...
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
We are pleased to offer these activities to a range of groups, key stages or classes so as to ensure that all children across school have access to enricment sports opportunities.
