PE at Old Priory involves pupils in the continuous process of planning, performing and evaluating in the areas of Games, Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics, Outdoor and Adventurous activities, and Swimming. We are committed to providing a minimum of 2 hours of high quality PE for all our children.
The greatest emphasis is placed on each child’s enjoyment of being physical and the need for activity and movement. We seek to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, to develop positive attitudes and to always ensure safe practice.
PE also plays a vital role in the emotional development of children. It can inspire children to achieve not just physically but also academically. Children can learn the vital skills of team work which can also be applied to forming friendships both in and out of school.
We are very fortunate at Old Priory to have two large playgrounds, a large school hall, a sports field, and our own swimming pool as well as other grass areas.
Information about the sporting clubs available to the children can be found on the clubs section of our website. Throughout the year there are opportunities in Football, Netball, Athletics, Tag-rugby and Cricket to name a few…the list does however grow and change!
Our school has a proud sporting tradition and a very strong reputation across the city for talented sports stars but also and just as importantly fair play, team work and sportsmanship.
