PE and Sports 2023/24
At Alkrington we believe every child should have the chance to participate in Physical Education, Physical Activity or School Sport on a regular basis in order to become physically and mentally confident and competent. Through all the sporting opportunities the children are given we want every child to develop a love, enjoyment and a passion for sport therefore continuing this into their later lives.
PE (Gymnastics, Athletics, Games, Dance and Swimming in Y4) is taught on a weekly basis and is not generally taught in a cross-curricular approach. At Alkrington Primary School we believe that physical education experiences, in a safe and supportive environment, is a vital and unique contributor to a pupil's physical and emotional health, development and well-being. The physical education programme aims to provide for pupil's with increasing self-confidence through the ability to manage themselves in a variety of situations.
We employ a PE specialist who, in addition to delivering our PE curriculum, supports the school when taking part in inter-school games and athletic events. As a school, we allow extensive opportunities for children to take part in high quality extra-curricular activities such as: football, netball, hockey, rugby, basketball, dodgeball and cricket.
The long term overview below details the PE activities that the children in each class will cover over the year.
Alkrington Primary School look forward to bringing you all of our sporting success in the 2023/24 School year. The school is entering as many events as possible this year and we will update the Sports pages as and when we play fixtures or tournaments.
