Swimming Data

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. The National Curriculum for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. 





Physical Education

So far this year, Year 5 have enjoyed tag rugby coaching from All Stars Rugby, Year 3/4 have worked with a coach from Go Well on invasion games and Year 5/6 have attended weekly swimming lessons. Reception - Year 2 have a weekly fundamental movement skills lesson, delivered by a coach from Simply Sport. Year 2 have recently started active English lessons, delivered by a coach from Go Well.

Previous PE events 

County Cross Country Finals

 A huge well done to the 12 cross country runners who braved the rain and mud at the Cross Country County Finals. The children were selected to represent Sedgefield SSP after their performances in October. Taking part at Bishop Auckland College this time, each and every one of them showed outstanding character and should be very proud of their achievements. 

Dance Festivals

We recently held our our Dance Festival. All the classes had the chance to perform their routine to the rest of the school. They dances were all themed around a topic including Ancient Egypt and Space. There were lots of outstanding individual and team performances. A huge well done to Class 7 who will go on to represent the school at the Sedgefield SSP Dance Festival.

Tag Rugby Festival

 Our Tag Rugby team took part in a tournament. We arrived at a boggy Newton Aycliffe Rugby Club in our finest sombreros! This was part of the Sedgefield Schools Partnership's Olympic theme - our school's country obviously being Mexico. Although results didn't go our way, the team improved throughout. We are most proud of the RESPECT award that the team won!

2018 - 2019

Sedgefield DASH!

15 children took part in the Sedgefield DASH. We had huge success in the track races with all 7 children reaching their finals. Lots of children also came a way with medals. A special mention for Luke who won GOLD in the throwing event. Well done everyone for all their hard work and determination.
