Building on a historical enthusiasm for sports, Brightwalton School is committed to delivering extremely high quality PE and sport as part of our intention to promote wellbeing for all and developing individual expertise. We offer an incredibly diverse range of sporting activities so that every child participates and will have an opportunity to represent the school in external competitions during their time here. An importance is placed on developing a fantastic team spirit, good sportsmanship and effective leadership skills.
Children are introduced to healthy and active habits. We celebrate and promote an interest in sporting activities both in and out of school with the intention that children will maintain this in their adult lives. Swimming is also highly valued as a life skill so we aim to provide 6 terms of swimming instruction for all children, extending this if necessary so that every child reaches the requirements for the end of Year 6.
Additionally, we encourage very active break times, with a wide range of physical equipment and the chance to practise sporting skills such as netball, football and tennis. At Brightwalton School, we are quite rightly proud of the excellence of our PE and sport and in recognition of this, we hold the Gold School Games Award.
