Physical Education

We believe in having fun while developing, self-confidence, competence and teamwork through Physical Education...

Physical Education is a fundamental part of school life here at Rode Heath. As an ActiveMark accredited school, we commit that at least 90% of pupils undertake at least 2 hours of high quality PE and school sport each week. This includes both curriculum and out of hours clubs based at school. 

Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 (years 1 and 2) develop the fundamental skills of: aiming and throwing, balance, co-ordination, control, and movement. In Key Stage 2 (years 3 to 6) children are able to use these fundamental skills to develop their knowledge of, and abilitites in, invasion games such as: football, basketball, netball, tag rugby and hockey. These skills are also transferrable to striking and fielding games such as cricket and rounders, together with net games such as tennis and volleyball.

All pupils have PE timetabled each week to cover the main areas of the National Curriculum which are: dance, gymnastics, games, swimming, athletics, and outdoor and adventurous activities. Swimming is also offered for children in KS2. A healthy lifestyle is also promoted. 

Alongside the PE Curriculum the children also have the opportunity to participate in after-school sports clubs including tag rugby, football, netball, dance, gym and cricket. A selection of these are offered at different times throughout the school year - hop over to our Extra Curricular Clubs and Activities page for more information.

Children are given the opportunity to participate in the local Schools Sports Partnership competitions. On a regular basis school fixtures are arranged in many sports which enables the children to be proud to represent their school. We also organise in-house team Sports Day where the children from each team colour compete against one another.
