Subject: Physical Education (PE)

A high-quality PE curriculum at The Rookeries inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that 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 aim of PE is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. We teach children about the importance of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Children take part in games, gymnastic movement, dance and athletic activities both indoors and outdoors. Children can take part in after-school clubs and have the opportunity to compete against other schools. The children have the opportunity to take part in a residential trip with a focus on outdoor activities and team-building skills. Children have swimming lessons in Year 5 at the local swimming pool.

PE is key to developing healthy lifestyles in young people, and at The Rookeries, we provide a wide array of opportunities for sports and other physical activities outside of normal curriculum time.
