Primary sport

All children benefit from specialist Physical Education teaching. They experience a wide spectrum of skills including ball skills, invasion games, dance, gymnastics, target games, athletics and striking and fielding games. 

Tennis coaching starts in Reception. We have a specialist tennis coach who enhances the children's tennis skills on a weekly basis and Years 5 & 6 also have additional tennis lessons in the summer term.

A number of After School Sports' Clubs are offered, including Football (lead by Derby County in the Community), Netball, Kwik Cricket, Short Tennis and Tag Rugby.

We participate in local football leagues and enter local competitions in other sports. The emphasis remains on enjoyment and participation and children are encouraged to be gracious winners and good losers. Good sportsmanship is expected, as are the high standards of behaviour which form part of our core values.
