PE and Sports
PE makes a valuable and integral contribution to the whole primary school curriculum. Pupils are involved in developing their skills, knowledge and understanding within a range of activities so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence.
PE provides the opportunity for pupils to be creative, competitive and to work together cooperatively in a variety of different contexts.
At Steeple Morden Church of England Primary School our vision is: that all young people should receive high quality PE lessons. Our pupils have access to an outstanding range of extra- curricular sport and physical opportunities (both on their school site and within the local community).
Throughout the course of the year the following clubs will be offered: football, rugby, netball, hockey, cricket, athletics, running, orienteering, country dancing and multi skills clubs.
All sports clubs are free to pupils -the school uses Sports Premium Finances to pay for them. During the year, we enter all the local sporting competitions and are generally very successful. We try and include as many children as possible to represent the school in these events. The school teams are selected from the children who have shown commitment by attending before and after school clubs. School clubs change each term, so please see the ‘Star’ newsletter, which is accessible through the front page of our website, for details.
