Beckford Primary School

"Together, we achieve."

Welcome to Physical Education

Beckford children have the opportunity to participate in a huge range of sports. Additional to weekly PE lessons, children have the opportunity to play sports at break times and lunch times.

We enter a number of sports leagues, non- competitive sports events and competitive tournaments throughout the year.

For children wanting to further advance their skills in certain sports, we offer after school sports clubs. These clubs are run by qualified sports coaches and require a minimal termly fee.

Children in years 3 & 4  have weekly swimming lessons; a full term in either autumn or spring  and a half term in the Summer.

Our aim is to ensure physical education at Beckford is fun, inclusive, challenging and safe for all.

Children are required to wear full PE kit for their lessons and for safety purposes must not wear any form of jewellery, including stud earrings.
