Physical Education

PE is an important part of the curriculum at school. PE has a wide range of benefits for children and gives them an opportunity to excel in sport and to participate in activities they may not do elsewhere. For more information about the PE your child will do this year please see the curriculum map for the whole school. You should also receive a termly curriculum map from your class teacher.

Each year group will have PE lessons twice a week and will need to wear PE uniform to school on the days that they have PE lessons. If you are unsure about when your child has PE please talk to their class teacher and they will remind you of which days PE happens on.

PE uniform can be bought from Lyons School Shop, Hertford Road, EN3 5BL.

PE has also given children the opportunity to represent the school in a variety of competitions and events. Last year the school was represented in: kurling, gymnastics, football, netball and athletics. Children were also welcome to share their sporting achievements with their class and year groups in assemblies.

Currently the school is running two after school clubs. There is a football club for boys and girls in year 5 and year 6. This club is held on a Thursday after school. There is also a netball club that is run on Friday after school for girls and boys in year 6.

This year the school is aiming to:

  • Continue participating in the mile run initiative
  • Participate in virtual leagues
  • Develop cross curricular links with other subjects in the curriculum
  • To work with local organisations to provide opportunities for children
  • Explore different types of physical exercise that promote mental health.

PE & Sports Premium

In April 2013, the government announced additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated to all schools with primary aged pupils.
