Welcome

P.E

At The Arches, all children take part in P.E at least twice a week. This educates young people in the use and knowledge of the body, and its movement, and helps promote a positive competitive attitude. 

P.E can develop the skills and competence required to participate in worthwhile physical activities. It promotes growth and physical development, establishing positive attitudes towards health and exercise. 

Throughout the year, children will have the opportunity to take part in football, tag rugby, basketball, indoor athlectics, netball, kwik cricket, tennis and rounders. Year 3 and Year 4 will also learn uni-hoc and dodgeball.

Our KS2 children also have the opportunity to go swimming and require a swimming cap. By the end of Year 6 all children are expected to be able to swim 25 metres.

Some children will be selected to take part in mini-kickers, football, tag rugby, basketball, indoor athlectics, netball, kwik cricket, tennis and rounders tournaments. Year 3 and 4 will also take part in uni-hoc and dodgeball tournaments. These tournaments usually take place after school, and children will be driven to these competitions by staff members.

Children should have a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps in their P.E kit, which should be in school all week.

All jewellery has to be removed before taking part in any physical education activity.
