At Helmshore Primary School we are committed to providing children with high quality physical education experiences that enable pupils to develop physical fitness, thinking and social skills. Children will develop positive attitudes towards physical activity and sport and will be encouraged to have a healthy life style which will enrich all aspects of their future. Physical Education provides opportunities for children to be creative and competitive while learning to work with and respect others.
We offer a variety of opportunities in sporting activities within school with every child having at least 2 hours of P.E. per week with opportunities to take part in after school clubs when available. Each child will experience dance, games, athletics and for some the opportunity to learn how to swim.
Year 6 visit Winmarleigh hall, where the children get the chance to spend the weekend participating in a wide variety of adventure activities.
Within school PE is taught by class teachers and by Mr Palmieri and Mrs Hall who are both experienced in many aspects of sport.
