Here at Sound & District sport is at our heart. We make a serious commitment to games and physical education for all children.
PE/Games lessons are taught by our own staff and by specialists from local clubs. Our curriculum is structured to ensure that every child gains skills and experiences in the traditional sports such as Tennis, Hockey, Netball & Football, as well as other more unusual sports such as Cheerleading, Boccia & Lacrosse.
Every child takes part in intra class/house competitions throughout the year and every KS1 & 2 pupil completes the 'Golden Mile' run weekly, working towards 25, 50 and 100 miles (which is celebrated as a whole school!).
All Reception, Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 children benefit from swimming lessons at the local pool in Whitchurch. Mrs Newton, who is a Level 3 Swimming Coach, oversees the 10 weeks of 1 hour lessons, so that all our pupils have the most effective and enjoyable swimming experience.
There are extensive opportunities for all children to pursue their sporting interests through our wide variety of before-sports clubs, practices at lunchtimes and after-school clubs.
We take great pride in our sporting teams that compete each year in a variety of sports and have developed strong links with local clubs to enable our more able and talented pupils to strive for elitism.
