PE. Physical Education
Keeping our children healthy and active is a priority and we do this through our Enrichment specialist Sports coach, Teacher led complementary 2nd weekday lessons, TA’s attending courses that promote active playtimes, ensuring playtimes are resourced and we use zoned areas of our playground to support a variety of activities with rotas introduced to ensure fair participation.
We also encourage children to participate in intra and inter school competitions, we try to offer a wide variety of afterschool clubs provided by specialist coaches, we host Road Safety, Bikeability and Scooter trainings and we encourage children to walk, ride or scoot to/from school daily along with healthy eating campaigns. The Friends of St Boniface support keeping our children healthy with their annual ‘Move in May’ campaign.
Children in years 2 and 3 attend swimming lessons at Tooting Leisure Centre and games, dance or gymnastics are taught on rotation.
Our external Coaches have worked with the school for a number of years, which means they are familiar with the pupils and the school. The games coach also trains the football team and afterschool basketball club.
We try to raise awareness of sporting achievements in assembly and for Sports Day, Football Blitz and KS1Games to be focused on pupils participating in House groups, where they can excel as individuals and in team activities.
