Physical Education

Frittenden Primary School aims to teach pupils, through experience, to know and value the benefits of participation in physical activities.  They will be taught to plan, to improve and to evaluate their performance and that of others.   Children will be given the opportunity to learn safely how to develop strength, endurance and control of their bodies through carefully structured challenges.

All children follow a balanced programme of study for gymnastics, dance and games in all years with the addition of athletics and outdoor and adventurous activities in Key Stage 2.  A minimum of 2 hours curriculum time will be given to PE, with the exception of Year R.

Children have the opportunity to try out different sports and represent the school in a variety of tournaments for example football, tennis, Tri-golf, swimming and athletics.

Children in KS2 who are unable to swim 25 metres are offered swimming lessons, usually during the Summer Term.
