Physical Education is taught by providing pupils with a broad range of skills and exposure to a diverse range of sports opportunities to instil a lifelong passion for a healthy, active lifestyle and a positive relationship with sports.
It is a discrete session and delivered by either our Sports Coaches or class teachers, to ensure high quality teaching and learning in all PE sessions.
Each class receives one lesson a week from a qualified sports specialist from Premier Sport. In addition, teachers follow the National Curriculum programmes of study for games, gym and dance.
Children from Years 1 - 6 are involved in team competitive events throughout the year with other primary schools. Sports Festivals are held at Sharnbrook Academy, Lincroft Academy and sometimes further afield in Bedford town schools.
Year 3 & 4 take part in the 'Create Festival' each year which is held at Sharnbrook Academy.
Additional Physical Activity
At Kymbrook Primary, we participate in the 'Mile a Day' initiative. Staff and children actively join in with walking and running each day to keep our hearts and bodies healthy.
We are subscribed to '5 a Day TV' and staff use this, and other resources, towards our commitment to the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people, aged 5 to 18, engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
