At Greythorn, we want all our children to love exercise and to be fit and healthy. We aim to offer them a wide variety of opportunities so that they can discover a sport that they really enjoy and that they will continue with as they get older. It also promotes positive attitudes towards physical activity and leading healthy lifestyles.
PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of our school. We believe that Physical Education and Sport contributes to the holistic development of young people and, through participation in Sport and PE, young people learn more about key values, such as co-operation, teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others. Furthermore, sport provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.
At Greythorn Primary School we believe that by following our school scheme of work and the requirements of the programmes of study, it forms a framework that ties in with our school ethos and philosophy. Areas of study include: Invasion Games, Dance and Gym, Net and Wall, Striking and Fielding and Fitness and Athletics. Greythorn children will also have the opportunity to go Swimming and take part in Outdoor and Adventurous Activities.
