At Penny Bridge we put a strong emphasis on physical education for all. The children all take part in lessons which keep them fit and healthy and enable them to experience a range of sports. We think that physical education skills are a key part of a child's development and plan lessons to ensure progression throughout the key stages. All children receive swimming lessons and are able to meet the national standard before they end their primary education.
CLUBS AND TEAMS
Alongside our lessons we run a variety of after school clubs and enter a number of local events. In order for the children to enjoy competition we try to link our clubs with an upcoming competition, therefore giving them the opportunity to perform to the best of their abilities.
We run clubs and compete in the following sports:
Football, rugby, cricket, athletics, orienteering, netball, basketball, multi sports, gymnastic,swimming and tennis
Recent success have been;

We give a broad and balanced sporting curriculum by also offering one off events such as a whole bike ride, outdoor days with local providers, dance competitions and a whole school sports day.
