PE and Sport
Physical Education and Sport are an important part of the Green Oaks curriculum.
All children have a PE session each week and this will be part of the Games, Dance and Gymnastics curriculum.
It is therefore important that your child has their PE kit in school every day. At the end of each week your child will bring their PE kit home for you to wash, ready to return to school on Monday.
Each school uses the PE and Sport funding to allocate money to improve the physical health and expertise of the children and this is based on an annual review and evaluation. Examples include sports coaches, teacher training, PE and sports equipment, as well as enhancing outside areas to promote physical activity.
In Key Stage 2 we are able to offer a range of competitive sports for children as part of a wider sports curriculum and during the year our children enjoy competing both in-school and against other school teams. Our annual District Sports event is a highlight of the academic year for our athletes and allows local schools to come together and compete in a real sports stadium. You can find out more about our Sports teams at Greenfields by reading our Sporting News.
At Greenfields all children are required to take part in swimming lessons as part of the statutory National Curriculum.
Children attend Hart Leisure Centre and take part in organised lessons to enable them to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
Lessons are taught by qualified swimming instructors under the supervision of school staff.
