As a school, we continue to develop our PE curriculum to provide a challenging and enriching experience for our PE students. As a result there has been a change to the design of the PE programme of study at key stages 2, 3 & 4. This involves extending the delivery of the swimming unit across the whole term for boys in term 1 and girls in term 2&3.
As highlighted on the programme of study (see links below), you will see that during term 1 boys PE is split into two units. Meaning each weekly lesson will consist of 1x Swimming lesson and 1x PE lesson. This evidently results in the boys having to bring BOTH swimming and PE kit for their PE lessons in term 1. The same arrangement will be required for the girls during term 2.
In preparation for the start of the year, can you please ensure you remind your son of this arrangement prior to their PE day. For the girls in term 1 they require only PE kit.
For your information the PE days for the relevant Year groups are highlighted below:
- Year 3: Thursday
- Year 4: Sunday
- Year 5: Monday
- Year 6: Wednesday
- Year 7: Sunday
- Year 8: Tuesday
- Year 9: Tuesday
