PE at Rook’s Nest Academy (Please scroll down to view Lockdown Home PE Learning)

At Rook’s Nest Academy our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and become more physically confident and competent. We hope that, through all the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer, the children will potentially develop a love and passion for sport and continue this into their later lives.

We aim to provide the children with at 1-2 hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week and where 2 hours is not possible provide other active lessons. We ensure children are healthy and active with at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day and by educating them on a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle.

At Rook’s Nest Academy, we also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to compete in a variety of competitions, during school time or by representing the school at local events. We hope that in doing so the children will develop greater confidence, team work and learn to win or lose with grace and sportsmanship. Due to Covid-19, the opportunity to represent the school has been less frequent so far this year when compared to previous years.

It is also of paramount importance that we create sporting leaders during the children’s time at Rook’s Nest Academy. We aim to offer lots of children the opportunity to lead sporting activities, organise games and events and learn to lead by example. By emphasising leadership, we hope the children learn the importance of communication, organisation, team work, resilience, perseverance and a respect for rules. Again, due to Covid-19, the opportunity for older pupils to lead younger pupils in sporting activities has been less frequent this year.

PE and Sport are a proud part of the Rook’s Nest Academy experience and we hope that this continues to grow in the future and prepare our children for life after Rook’s Nest Academy.

Please see the primary school sports funding section for more information about PE in our school.
