Physical Education at Denfield Park.
Each academic year, the children at Denfield will experience games, dance, swimming, athletics and gymnastics teaching through a multi-skilled approach. They will also get the opportunity to take part in a residential visit in years 5 and 6. This allows the child to gain independence, experience outdoor education, through problem solving and learning the geography of the area. We endeavour to let children experience a vast range of PE and sport and hope they will continue to enjoy one of these sports throughout their education and beyond. Children of all abilities and needs are able to participate in P.E lessons.
We also recognise that PE and school sport is a key area in which social and personal skills are taught and learnt.
We aim to offer a wide variety of after school sporting clubs, to all age groups. Please see the timetable in the clubs section of the website. These will run over two terms. These are run by dedicated sports coaches or teachers. Some clubs are fee payable.
The school is part of a group of local schools, whom regularly meet for festivals for KS1 and 2 and mini tournaments or friendly matches. This enables us to compete at District and County levels. Also, at times, specialist coaches come into school to deliver lessons to upskill teachers.
We feel the children’s safety is a very important part of PE teaching and learning, therefore we have guidelines on the dress code for both indoor and outdoor PE lessons. These can be found in our Policy for your information.
