At The Tynings, we offer a variety of opportunities in sporting activities, whether in-house, extra-curricular, or from experienced coaches. Every child has at least 2 hours of P.E per week, with added opportunities to take part in after school clubs. Children will experience apparatus, dance, games and athletics, and years 3 – 5 receive a term of swimming sessions over the course of the school year.
Throughout the year there are opportunities to take part in a range of festivals with other schools, which encourages fair play and challenge. We also offer football, netball and athletics clubs, and we aim to develop more clubs as the year continues.
The delivery of the PE curriculum is referenced to sets of Schemes of Work for PE at each Key Stage that incorporate anticipated learning outcomes, which are differentiated, depending on ability, to assist with the assessment of pupils. To help ensure high standards in PE, the school works towards recognition by the external accreditation scheme ‘Sainsburys School Games Mark’, and we have recently been awarded the silver award for our achievements.
