PE

PE is an important part of our curriculum. It is taught by both teachers and PPA staff, following a whole school scheme, tailored to suit Springfield, but based upon advice from Sandwell LA.

Each year group follows a programme under several headings:- games, dance, athletics, gymnastics, outdoor/adventurous with Y1 also swimming. the emphasis is on skills, fitness and competative fun

At the start of the year children and parents are given the days when kit will be needed and it is expected that children take part unless they have a letter giving the medical reasons.

We have a playing field, two tarmac playing areas and two multi-use halls with PE apparaus in both.

Healthy lifestyles and the reasons for sport and exercise are taught as an integral part of our curriculum.

We run many sporting clubs over the year, from the traditional football and dance to cheer leading street dance and golf. these are open to Y1-6 at various times depending on the coaches who are available. Our dance and football teams have been exceptionally successful in recent years and are renowned across the borough!
