As a school we have invested in the quality scheme ‘Real PE’ which reflects our commitment to developing physical literacy and the emotional and thinking skills needed to achieve in PE, Sport and Life. This is a child-centred approach which aims to challenge and support every child and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning.

We employ WRCoaching for one afternoon each week to provide some of our classes with professional coaching across a range of sports.

Every child completes the Daily Mile or the Skip2bfit programme each day to improve their general wellbeing and level of fitness.

We begin swimming lessons in Year 2 where children are assessed and grouped to ensure that those who need most practise get the opportunity for further swimming throughout key stage 2. We aim for every child to leave Great Rollright as a competent swimmer.

We are keen to encourage as many extra-curricular sporting clubs as possible and offer – Football, Hockey, Netball, Gymnastics, Aerobics and Tennis, when possible, throughout the year.

This year we have invested in Yoga and Wellbeing lessons for the whole school as part of our Covid recovery plans.
