PE & Sport
Physical activity is an important part of our overall approach to children's well-being; we believe passionately in the principle of 'healthy body, healthy mind' and have an inclusive approach which aims to develop a love of physical activity and sport.
Children have regular PE lessons covering all aspects of the curriculum, including games, dance, gymnastics, athletics, outdoor & adventurous activities, and swimming. There is also an extensive extra-curricular programme, with opportunities for children to take part in a range of sports including football, rugby, tennis, multisports, fencing, athletics, running, triathlon, netball, golf and cricket.
We are active members of the Esher District Primary School Sports' Association and have good links with a number of clubs including Claygate Royals FC and Claygate Cricket Club.
Children are encouraged to develop a love of sport and a healthy attitude to competition, learning how to be good winners and good losers. In recent years we have increased opportunities for children to take part in competitions with other schools.
Children in KS2 also have regular opportunities to compete against other schools in leagues and tournaments. Recent successes have included:
