Great news - Botley School was awarded the GOLD AWARD for P.E in 2018.
Through PE we promote the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle. Through our curriculum we actively encourage positive attitudes towards sport and develop competitive but respectful attitudes to participation and competition. As part of the West Oxford Schools Sports Partnership, we provide many opportunities to participate in sports events ad tournaments in Key Stage 2.
We start the day with Wake Up Shake Up at least two mornings per week. As part of Active Maths, we ensure that learning is active and understand that activity is good for learning behaviours, we enjoy taking part in short bursts of activity between lessons with Supermovers! We also have good links with local sports clubs and children benefit from coaching from trained professionals in specific areas.
Our aspiration at Botley School is to deliver high quality Physical Education in all year groups. Wherever possible links are made to termly topics (e.g. dance), but where links are unable to be made the PE curriculum is taught discretely. We teach games skills, gymnastics, dance and athletics across the school.
Swimming is taught at Key Stage 2.
Please see curriculum map for coverage of PE taught across the school.
