We aim to develop agility, physical co-ordination, fitness, confidence and enjoyment through PE lessons. The school is able to use the playground, the school garden, the village hall and Church grounds for its PE sessions. In addition, especially in the summer months, athletics, rounders and sports day are enjoyed on the village recreation ground.
Key Stage 2 children go swimming at Whitecross Leisure Centre, Lydney, during the Autumn Term. Reception and Key Stage 1 children go during the Summer Term.
Children from Reception to Year 4 enjoy a Forest School afternoon every week, encouraging outdoor learning and physical exercise. There is an opportunity to learn all about nature in-situ.
The school is in receipt of funding from the Government as part of a National Strategy. The proposed way of spending this is outlined in the document below. This is a working document so will change during the year.
