Physical Wellbeing

We place a high emphasis on physical wellbeing, with numerous opportunities for all children to be active throughout each day.

There is a range of equipment available to use at play times and lunch times, which includes fitness trails, climbing equipment and a climbing wall as well as ball and field games which are hosted by our lunchtime supervisors.

We offer a number of extra-curricular sports clubs, with something available to every year group. This is an important part of both physical and mental wellbeing.

Finally, PE lessons enable children to become more physically literate and enjoy various aspects of PE. Each week children take part in lessons which focus on improving fitness alongside lessons which cover the PE curriculum.

Bible Garden

The Bible garden is a school wide project where children from every year group manage an area of the garden and grown a variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers.

We have been able to harvest some of the food and cook it in school and send some food home for our families to enjoy!

The Bible Garden is also designed to encourage as much nature and wildlife as possible with its very own bug hotel!

Children enjoy the opportunity to be outside with nature and witness how nurturing the garden can lead to harvesting food and creating beautiful flowerbeds.

Lunch on the Terrace

During the warmer weather, children enjoy eating their lunch outside on the terrace!

We have lovely picnic benches, plants, images and even an awning to protect from the sunshine so that eating outside is a really and enjoyable experience for children. Many of the children enjoy eating outside as this is something they may not get the opportunity to do elsewhere.
