At Thomas Bullock Primary Academy we believe that it is every child’s right to be offered a Physical Education that is challenging, fun and competitive. Therefore, we offer every child 2 hours of curriculum time PE per week.
The children are offered a wide range of sport in curriculum time including dance, gymnastics, cricket, rugby, athletics, swimming and netball. There are also a range of sporting clubs available throughout the year including football cricket, tennis, netball and gymnastics.
Through PE we can replicate many of our whole school values. Children regularly represent the school in a range of inter school and county competitions and in each event a values star is always chosen and celebrated in the following Friday Celebration Assembly.
Participation in PE and sport can improve a huge range of skills for children:
- Positive attitudes, attributes and physical skills.
- Fine motor skills.
- Health and wellbeing.
- Promotes inclusion and cohesion.
- Introduces competition and the concepts of winning and losing.
- Team work and listening skills.
Every year our school is allocated a sports premium budget. Details of the spending of this money and the impact of this can be found detailed below.
