This page contains information regarding the PE Curriculum for Ghyllgrove Primary School.
Both of our large halls serve as a well-equipped gymnasium and each class is timetabled to use it for a variety of activities during the week. When the weather permits, we can also use both the playgrounds and extensive playing fields for P.E. and games. P.E. is a statutory requirement of the National Curriculum and if your child is unable to take part please send a note to school stating the reason.
The programme for P.E includes gymnastics, game skills, athletics and dance. The children are very fortunate to have a range of specialist coaches (SPEC Training) come into school and teach them alongside their teachers.
We feel it is important for the children to dress appropriately for P.E. lessons with red shorts, white top and plimsolls or trainers. For outdoor games the children should dress appropriately for the weather conditions. This should be a plain black tracksuit.
Please note no jewellery is permitted during P.E and earrings must be removed or pupils cannot take part due to health and safety. Ear tape is not allowed.
Please note if your child wears a medical bracelet or other item of jewellery that cannot be removed please speak to a member of staff. Also if your child has long hair please can this be tied back appropriately.
We also provide a range of before and after sports clubs led by the SPEC Training team. If you would like more information on this, please contact your class teacher.
