Physical Education

PE is an important part of the curriculum at school. Each class has two PE lessons a week.

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 on the year group section of the website.

The day that they have PE with their class teacher they will need to come to school in their school uniform and bring their PE kit with them. We recommend that PE kit is brought in on a Monday and goes home on a Friday for clothing to be washed ready for the following week. This allows a certain amount of flexibility for when PE days change or an additional session is added.

PE kit consists of:

  • Black shorts
  • White T-shirt
  • Trainers for outdoor PE
  • Plimsolls for indoor PE (or barefoot)
  • Black tracksuit bottoms (when the weather is cold)

PE uniform with school logo can be bought from Lyons School Shop, Hertford Road, EN3 5BL. Less expensive options are also available from other shops.

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 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. This year the school aims to take part in a variety of competitions with other schools in Enfield. The sport competitions we will enter include football, netball, gymnastics and athletics.

Children are also welcome to share their sporting achievements with their classes.

Currently the school is running a football club. This club is held on a Wednesday after school. Ultrasport also run football training on Tuesday and Friday during lunchtimes.

The school also runs and takes part in a number of sporting events during the course of the year. These include:

  • Participating in the mile run initiative
  • Participating in the London mini marathon
  • Developing 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.
