At Manor Field Primary School, we believe that pupils of all abilities from four to eleven should benefit from a broad and balanced physical education programme.
Physical Education experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a vital and unique contributor to a pupil’s physical and emotional health, development and well being and has a significant influence on the intellectual and social development of each pupil.
At manorfield we teach: dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities.
After sustained years of staff training, all teachers are equipped to deliver skills within the national curriculum. We are also very fortunate to have our very own Dance teacher, who teaches all year groups during the teachers’ PPA time.
The school is very active in participating in competitive events in lots of other sports including cricket, basketball, stool ball, netball, athletics and gymnastics to name a few.
We continue to add enrichment opportunities within and outside of the school curriculum. At manorfield, we use a mixture of external and internal staff to provide a growing range of after school activities.
Sports Crew: A group of Year Five and Six pupils have been specially trained to lead sports sessions during lunch times for our KS1 pupils. We value pupil leadership and the children thoroughly enjoy the level of responsibility given to them!
Facilities : As well as having two halls for PE and dance, we also have vast playground facilities and fortunately, a large field where we can host football tournaments, athletic and sports day events. In 2018, we also built a running track to enable pupils and staff to take part in the “Daily run a mile challenge”.
