Physical education

Danesfield Manor School

Physical education

We are very proud of the wide range of sporting activities and opportunities offered to the children.

From a young age the children are taught basic coordination strategies, movement and the ball skills required to build a range of skills required for all sports.

 It is important for all children to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle and this is encouraged from nursery through to Year Six.

As the children progress through the school, they will enjoy sports, such as, football, rugby and netball in the Autumn term. During the Spring term the pupils can progress their skills in hockey, basketball and cross country running. The summer term comprises a range of athletic skills in order to prepare for the annual sports day event. They will also develop their understanding of cricket, rounders and tennis. Children regularly participate in competitive fixtures against other local schools.

Facilities

Our on-site swimming pool allows the children to have at least 1 hour of swimming built into their timetable from as early as 3 years old. Many of our pupils are selected and invited to attend the Bronze, Silver and Gold squad clubs and enjoy our inter-house competitions and galas.

Extra Curricular

There are also many opportunities to join our additional afterschool clubs which are arranged from age to interest. Our unique water-skills, water-polo and synchronised swimming clubs provide an exciting alternative to gaining confidence in the water.
