Physical Education (PE) and Sport
We are part of the Littlehampton Area Sports Partnership (LASP); a group of ten schools from the Littlehampton area who believe in, live for and love sport. As a sporting community of children from Reception to Year 6 we meet most weeks to compete in competitive Level 2 competitions. We know that competitions give us the opportunity to socialise with others, develop our own game and give us new experiences. We love being part of such a sporting community and our aim is to inspire the future generations through sport. We are lucky to have amazing children and hugely supportive teachers and parent, who all work together to make us one of the most active sports localities in the south.
We strive to strike a balance between competitiveness and inclusivity, looking to ensure as many children as possible have the opportunity to participate in sports events whatever their sporting ability and have experienced much sporting success through this ethos.
Our enjoyment of sport is reflected in our curriculum provision through swimming, games, gymnastics and dance and the promotion of active and healthy lifestyles. We celebrate National School Sports Week on an annual basis and Sport Relief. We also have a whole school sports day each year and our sports crew play an active role in setting up and running events. Each child and staff member belongs to a house and earns points across the course of the school year. The house with the most points is presented with the house cup in the headteacher’s award assembly and sports day results go towards this cumulative total. We have an active sponsored event biennially to raise funds for the school such as a sponsored run, bounce or skip.
We offer a wide range of sports based clubs before and after school. Some of these are run by external providers and others by members of school staff and currently include cricket, football, karate and zumba.
