Physical Education-Health & Wellbeing

Physical Education

At Five Spires Academy we believe that physical education has a vital and unique role to play in a child’s development. As part of the PE curriculum, our children experience a wide range of individual, partner and team activities that help to build a positive attitude and help children to understand the role that regular physical activity can play in a balanced lifestyle.

The range of physical activities we provide includes: athletics, games, dance, gymnastics and Year 4 attend weekly swimming lessons. All activities are designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, purposeful and regular, to give children the maximum benefit, all children at Five Spires Academy participate in both indoor and outdoor PE sessions.

Extra-Curricular Activities

At lunchtime from Tuesday to Thursday, children are able to join in with a range of activities led by specialised Sports coaches. 

Our After School sports provision is delivered by Progressive Sports, who offer a range of clubs on a half-termly rotation. Clubs include: gymnastics, tennis, archery, dodgeball and multi-skills amongst others. **Please note that during COVID-19 a reduced range of clubs are on offer to ensure the safety of our school community. 

Upper Key Stage 2, will from 2020/2021 be able to enjoy competing in football and cross-country running competitions, once COVID-19 restrictions have lifted. 

At Five Spires Academy, we understand the importance of promoting children and young people's emotional health and wellbeing.

Our PSHE scheme is provided by the PSHE Association and we use their support for schools to ensure we are teaching children about mental health safely and effectively.
