At Anglesey Primary we believe that it is every child’s right to be offered a Physical Education that is challenging, fun and competitive. Therefore we offer every child 2 hours of curriculum time PE in the autumn and spring terms and in the summer, an additional hour is added for swimming, making 3 hours of curriculum time PE.
The children are offered a wide range of sport in curriculum time including dance, gymnastics, hockey, Outdoor and Adventurous Activities (OAA), cricket, rugby, football, athletics, swimming, netball and basketball.
We offer lots of after school clubs that give the children an opportunity to engage in an additional hour of sport a week.
At Anglesey we believe that all children are able to achieve their 25 metre certificates. Therefore we give the children the opportunity to swim in Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4.
We also encourage parents to take children swimming outside of school so they can develop and learn vital water safety skills.
