Providing every child the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of sports and encouraging lifelong activity.
How does PE work in our school?
At the beginning of every academic year, each child gets the opportunity to choose which sport they will take part in each term. An example of some are Karate, American Football and Orienteering. As well as the school teacher, external specialist coaches come in to school to provide high quality lessons for the children. Due to our positive relationships with our external coaches we are proud to say we have strong community links e.g. Benenden Tennis Club, Charlton Athletics Community, Tenterden Golf Club, Feet Beats and many others. The key dedicated time of Thursday (Lower School) and Friday (Upper School) afternoons for Physical Education ensures that everyone receives the correct amount of time to being active each week.
As well as during the school day, PE and sports play a massive part in our school community, having at least one club running every day. These range from Cheerleading and Football to Netball and Fencing. The timetable is forever changing as we add new sports to our after-school clubs.
Alongside our sports clubs we run sports trips for the children and try to invite the parents where possible. Our regular trips are to Wimbledon Tennis and Rugby 7’s Tournament. New trips that we have attended in the last year are the Parathletic Championships at the Olympic park and England vs Barbarians.
