This local organisation helps the school by supporting our PE curriculum. The coaches provide fun and active games which promote co-operation and teamwork whilst delivering a range of PE activities.
These fun, structured play sessions took children on a journey of sporting imagination with an engaging and energetic coach, who supported them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team.
School Aims for Sport
- To enable children to become independently active within the school and community
- To develop skills and concepts in relation to physical competence, health and fitness, safe practice, personal and social skills.
Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school, at Prospect Hill Infant School all children participate in physical education and games for two hours a week and the school follows the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage 1.
After school clubs are run by our own staff and sometimes external coaches. We offer the following clubs at different times of the school year: -
