PE

Physical Education develops children’s physical skills, confidence, capabilities and potential. It gives opportunities for children to be creative and competitive while learning to work with and respect others. At Davyhulme Primary School, children learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, often in pairs and small groups, helping them to develop the quality and effectiveness of their work. We promote a positive attitude towards active lifestyles and aim to introduce children to lifelong physical activity. Our pupils are encouraged to complete the ‘daily mile’ every day. The Daily Mile is all about improving the health and wellbeing of children. The benefits they gain are physical, emotional, social and mental – all from running or jogging, at their own pace, for 15 minutes every day.

In addition to being taught by their class teacher, children across the school are also taught by PE teachers and coaches who are specialists in their field. Our aspiration is for all children to do a minimum of 2 hours PE a week.

The school runs a range of after school clubs which involve children in competitive and friendly sporting fixtures. These include gymnastics, cross country, multisport, football, dance, skittle ball, netball, judo, boxing and athletics. The school plays competitive sport in the local schools’ leagues.
