The Edward Betham C of E Primary School

Physical Education

Children are taught gymnastics, dance, games and athletics, developing their skills in movement and coordination. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Swimming lessons are given to pupils in Year 4 as part of the Physical Education curriculum. There is no charge for these lessons. Junior children have the opportunity to join a number of sports clubs after school. The school participates in a range of local tournaments and championship events.
