Curriculum Intent for Physical Education (P.E.)

At Scargill we see P.E. as an excellent way of promoting personal and physical development of each and every child. Each class is required to teach a minimum of 2 hours of P.E. per week. All students are expected to take part in these activities unless excluded for medical reasons. 

We aim to give all the students the opportunity to take part in sporting activities within the school day and through extracurricular activities, which are encouraged. In lessons, our youngest students are taught basic skills such as catching, throwing, jumping and kicking as well as other fundamentals of early movement. These and other skills are developed throughout the school so that all can participate to the best of their ability in our P.E. programme. Throughout their time at school, children will take part in a wide-variety of games and activities. Students will partake in a 15-week swimming programme when they enter Year 4. Scargill offer a wide-range of extra-curricular clubs with many of these clubs taking a sporting focus. 

Sporting teams represent our school in a range of different sports. Fixtures are arranged against other local schools and our teams have recorded many notable successes. ​
