At Drayton Park we value Physical Activity and school sport as a priority and understand how important it is to provide multiple opportunities for our children to live a Healthy Active Lifestyle and give them the best chance for lifelong participation within sport.
“All lessons will encompass the values of the ‘learning characters’ (good behaviour/challenge, independence, safety, resilience, cooperation and aspiration) valuing the whole child in a holistic approach whilst including the fundamental skills needed for lifelong participation in sport. These values go alongside the long term strategy of the school to develop Excellence, Citizenship and Aspiration as part of our school ethos Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day”
“All children will have access to over 2 hours of physical activity per week which will be led by specialist teachers ensuring all provision is safe, fun and physically active. All children to be confident and competent in a range of sports learning fundamental skills such as throwing, catching, movement, space, tactics, artistic elements, and warming up which sets them up for lifelong participation in sport. During lessons, we are determined that children will use vital skills from across the curriculum in the key areas, such as Invasion Games, Dance, Gymnastics, Striking & Fielding, Athletics, Net & Wall, OAA, and Swimming to deepen their Physical education understanding. This will be built on through a well-designed curriculum starting from foundation and finishing in year 6.”

These pictures are an excellent example of what children need in a P.E bag. We encourage all children to bring in their PE kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. Labelled clothing is also extremely helpful.
Any encouragement of independent changing at home would be welcomed and shoelace tying for those with laces is a vital skill for them to learn.
I will also try and ensure all children leave school with their shoes on the right feet :-)
If you have any questions, then please send me a message.
