Bocking Church Street Primary School

Sports & PE

We believe that Sport is for All and that every child should have the opportunity –and be actively encouraged - to enjoy a range of activities and develop their skills according to their age and ability.
We hold an annual Sports Day for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 at which all children participate in a variety of competitive events.
The school has good sports facilities including a large playing field, a netball court/hard-surface playground and a hall for activities such as gym.
All children are entitled to a broad and balanced PE curriculum of at least two hours quality teaching. From Reception through to Year 6, each year group develops skills through a variety of activities, e.g, invasion games, net/wall games, striking and fielding games, dance, gymnastics, athletics and swimming. A programme of study ensures coverage and development of a balance of skills.
In addition to in-school sport, opportunities usually arise during the year for additional sporting and outdoor activities. Every year a residential visit for Year 6 children is arranged, where they are taught field study skills alongside a variety of outdoor pursuits and generally build their independence.
