Physical Education

Children are expected to participate in all P.E. activities.  Throughout their time at Romanby children will have experience of dance, gymnastics, athletics, swimming and outdoor games.  They also take part in outdoor and adventurous activities and have the option to attend a residential centre in Key Stage 2. Together, these promote the children’s physical development, an awareness and understanding of the body, the development of skills and imagination and an appreciation of creative performances.  Most importantly, it is hoped that the children will gain enjoyment from physical education and pursue sporting activities outside school, thus promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Throughout the year, all children have the opportunity to represent the school in a range of inter-school sports competitions at all age levels.  This includes: Fundamental Movement events, a Fun Run, Gymnastics and a 'Mini Olympics' at Key Stage 1; Cross Country, Tennis, Hockey, Football, Cricket and Athletics in Year 3 and 4, and further opportunities in these sports as well as Swimming, Tag Rugby, Dodgeball, Tchoukball, Netball and Rounders in Year 5 and 6.  Provision is made in school for team coaching sessions, in addition to regular PE lessons, and most events aim to involve children of all ability levels, with the top performing teams and individuals regularly progressing to Area and County level competitions.
