We believe that sport and PE makes a difference it to all our children and has an impact on their teamwork, self confidence, respect and fitness. We believe in giving all children opportunities to extend their abilities and discover new skills, which is exactly what sport and physical activity do.
In class PE includes school use Dynamic Movement System (DMS) where by all children are involved in intense aerobic exercise that also helps links the two halves of the brain and improve core strength.
We complement teacher led PE sessions with specialist coaching from local sporting facilities such a s Clissold Tennis club and swimming at Clissold swimming pool. We also have links with Capital Kids cricket who provide coaching. This strong offer ensures all classes get some kind of specialist teacher input.
In upper KS2 all children get bikeability sessions and this culminates in Y6 with the whole class riding in the Bike around the Borough event and Grasmere’s own cycling event of cycling from the school to Broxbourne: about 25 miles!
We participate in many competitions and events in the Borough for a variety of sports such as football (both Girls and Boys), cricket, athletics, multi skills, cross country, tennis and netball. We also have an inclusive sports day which is a real celebration of sport where all have a chance to participate in competition.
