P.E and Sport at St Breward School

At St Breward School PE very important to us, we aim to ensure pupils are physically active and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Our P.E. lessons are varied and fast paced.  The children take part in a range of games, dance, gymnastics and swimming activities. We aim to provide the children with a range of additional sports and activities such as climbing, surfing, lacrosse, street dance and kick boxing.

We regularly attend inter school festivals to promote fair play, sportsmanship, developing skills and promoting a love for sport. These festivals also benefit staff through high quality CPD opportunities.

 After schools are well attended by a range of children. This year we have provided netball, rugby, football and dance after school clubs.  Plymouth argyle have also returned this term to provide an after school club, this was requested by the children after huge success and enjoyment last year.

 To encourage children to be as active as possible throughout the school day, we have morning active breaks including wake and shake, team games, daily mile and key skill activities,

 Sports leaders are excellent role models and valuable members of the school. They help to promote physical activity and sports throughout the school. The leaders arrange games and activities for all ages during break times and lunch times. Sports leaders feedback pupils voice during regularly meeting with Miss Simpson and help to make decisions regarding after school clubs, sports day and maintain the sports board to provide relevant information to pupils.

The school provides swimming lessons for children in YR4, 5 and 6. The children attend Camelford leisure centre weekly for 6 weeks. We are passionate about helping all children to meet the expectation to swim 25m by the end of key stage 2.

 Miss Simpson is our PE coordinator and is very proud of the positive attitude presented by the children towards PE and sport. Our small school make a big effort to engage with and enjoy PE.


Sponsored walk 2021
The whole school completed a sponsored walk; the younger children did a shorter walk around the village and the older children walked 10km to Alex Tor. 
The weather was perfect(not too hot or too cold), the children were brilliant and we even had an ice lolly half way. 
Excellent job everyone!
KS1 Multi-skills Festival 
Year 1 and Year 2 children attended a multi-skills festival at Camelford Leisure, with 3 other primary schools in the MAT. The children completed various different activities focusing on ball control, agility and target practice. The children worked hard and tried their best. Well done everyone!
Netball World Cup Afternoon 

In order to celebrate the recent Netball World Cup, the whole school participated in a netball themed afternoon. The younger children developed their basic netball skills and the older children ran a mini inter-house tournament. It was fantastic to see so many children enjoying themselves and Miss Simpson is looking forward to recruiting new players in September.
