PE, Health & Wellbeing


At Suttons we aim to introduce pupils to a wide range of physical activities and skills in an atmosphere where personal improvement at whatever level is combined with enjoyment.  We are fully committed to developing both children and staff in reaching their full potential.

Our pupils have PE lessons from Nursery onwards.  They are given opportunities to practise their skills both individually and in group situations, where much emphasis is placed upon co-operation and consideration.  As they progress, they are able to participate in high quality sports.  Last year, the government invested in a grant for schools to use to ensure all children are provided with as many experiences as possible.  We strongly believe children should be exposed to these experiences in order to make their own decisions about what sports they enjoy and are talented at. 

We have introduced ‘Premier Sport’ (the UK's largest children's coaching company of its kind) to deliver high quality sport and physical activity sessions.  Pupils are taught both outdoor and indoor sports, including: football, netball, hockey, athletics, gymnastics and dance.

We have a strong partnership with local schools and enter local events and competitions to promote PE and a healthy life style to all our children.  As well as this, we are fortunate to have opportunities to experience one off sessions or a series of sessions, with teachers from our feeder schools who are extremely enthusiastic about children enjoying and achieving in PE.

Being a small school our Sports day is designed to bring families and school together.  We dedicate an entire day to sports.  A day which includes parents, children and teachers working together and having fun whilst children are learning to be fair competitors and good team players.

Learning to swim is an important life skill.  We organise lessons for all children in Year 3 and Year 5.  These take place during school time and are a part of the school curriculum. Our aim is for all children to be able to swim a minimum or 25 metres by the age of eleven. 

In 2017-18 our children could do the following:

Year 3 Year 5
Swim competently, confidently and proficiently
over a distance of at least 25 metres.
36% 48%
Use a range of strokes effectively 30% 46%
Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based
6% 27%

Health & Sex Education:
The school aims to provide a co-ordinated approach to health and sex education.  This forms an integral part of the school’s Science and PSHE curriculum.

It is important that children should be well prepared and understand the physical and emotional changes that take place in their lives.  All outrchildren participate in the programme of Personal, Social and Health Education appropriate to their age and level of maturity.
