A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
National Curriculum in England, DfE 2013
PE is part of the National Curriculum and every child is expected to take part. If you would like your child excused from games for health reasons, a written note should be provided, supported by a Doctor’s note if your child needs to be excused long-term.
We have excellent outdoor sports facilities, including our recently installed MUGA (Multi Use Games Area), covering a broad spectrum of exciting, enjoyable and enriching activities, including Swimming, Cross-Country, Football, Rounders, Netball, Athletics Hockey and Dance. These outdoor pursuits are matched with Dance, Gymnastics and Circuit Training in our splendid School Hall, all of which are equally accessible for both boys and girls.
In addition to Thomlinson’s own sporting programme and Inter-Junior School Competitions, our excellent facilities also play host to a number of tournaments between the local primary schools.
