The aim of physical education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators.
Children take part in games, gymnastic movement, dance and athletic activities using indoor and outdoor environments where appropriate. Children can take part in after school clubs and have the opportunity to compete against other schools.
In Year 5/6, children go on a bi-annual residential course for outdoor activities.
Children have swimming lessons from Year 3 to Year 6 at the local swimming pool/ secondary school.
Physical education is seen as key to developing healthy lifestyles in young people and at Mickleton we provide a wide array of opportunities to develop this and sporting skills outside of the normal curriculum time. Regular after school clubs: Football, Netball, Floorball, Cricket, Rounders, Reception KS1 Multi-skills and Cross Country, Playground Leaders etc. encourage children to be as physically active as possible.
