At New Silksworth Academy we offer an extensive PE programme. Pupils take part in a range of activities during lesson time including dance, gymnastics, games (invasion, net/wall and striking/fielding), athletics and swimming. The school utilises specialist PE coaches for different areas of the curriculum.
Most of our PE lessons are taught on site in one of our two large halls, on the playground or the school field. Swimming is taught at Farringdon Community Academy and outdoor educational activities are offered for Year 6 on a residential visit to Derwent Hill. Staff are offered high quality CPD to ensure they feel confident when teaching PE.
Pupils are encouraged to build on their range of skills within lessons before applying skills into a game or competition. All pupils throughout the year will participate in at least one event at Farringdon Community Academy.
