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.

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!

Cornwall Spring Games Finals      Thursday 31st March
Our inspiring netball team played in the Cornwall Spring Games final against the other 7 teams that had qualified in their region finals. It was a sunny but cold day, the team played 7 continuous matches, winning 4 games and losing 3.
The team finished a very respectable 4th!
This is an amazing achievement for a school our size to finish 4th in the whole of Cornwall ( the winning school has 424 pupils).
I would like to share a little about the role they all played in getting so far .
Ashton - never stopped running , lead the team in a captain role and had brilliant awareness of the rules.
Lyla- put in lots of energy and effort, excellent defending and determination.
Isabella- never stopped smiling even when faced with very tall opposition and ran her socks off.
Lois- worked hard to pass the ball accurately and showed brilliant movement into spaces.
Josh - (our original super sub !) demonstrated a calm and collected approach to the game, listened well to feedback and fought for every ball.
Annabel- showed brilliant teamwork skills and her sportsmanship was commendable, she adapted well to each game and didn’t give up.
Eben- perseveres in all matches, even when they were tough and tried hard to listen to his team mates and coach.
Emily- her brilliant netball skills shone in every position and was a true team player.
 Netball Success
The school netball team attended a MAT netball competition, where they played against 7 other teams. They finished top of their group and won their semi-final and final games, being crowned the winners. 
We were very proud of their determination, team work and attacking and defending skills. Well done!
East Cornwall Games
Our brilliant netballers attend the East Cornwall finals at Callington College alongside 8 other teams. The team drew 1 game and won the rest, meaning that they finished top of their pool. They then continued their success and won their final game, therefore qualifying for the Cornwall Games final. Brilliant effort and hard work by all!.
