At Huish Episcopi Primary School we offer a very rich provision for Physical Education
Not only do we plan our curriculum carefully so that children gradually learn a range of skills but we also encourage them to access a range of different sporting activities both within school and outside. Throughout the year we take part in a wide variety of intra and inter school sports competitions and festivals.
For intra sports every child is put into a colour team and takes part in competitions linked to the PE curriculum.
Sports teams take part in inter school sports competitions and festivals throughout the year. Listed below are the events we take part in.
Children also have the opportunity to participate in different sports on and off site such as kickboxing, contemporary dance, archery, outdoor adventure, country dancing and yoga.
Inter School Sports Competitions and Festivals
- Tag Rugby
- Athletics/Sports Hall Athletics
- Cross Country
School Games Award
We hold the GOLD School Games Award. The school has demonstrated excellent participation in PE lessons and competitive sports. All children have shown a great enthusiasm during lessons and when representing their school with outstanding sporting values. On 11 June 2019, we heard that we have been awarded the GOLD School Games Award for all the sport and PE we do in and out of school. It is the fourth year running we have achieved the GOLD standard!
Quote from our School Games Organiser Scott Brooks ‘Congratulations Huish Episcopi Primary School on another great year, well done what a great effort, keep up the good work.’
Please find below a chart showing achievements by pupils in swimming by the end of Year 6:
Each KS2 class has swimming lessons for a term. We ask for a contribution towards the cost of hiring Huish Leisure and their instructors/life guards. We do need at least two volunteers to help walk the children to and from the pool – without volunteers, this activity may not be able to take place.
