Sporting & Physical Activity

PE, Sports and activities at St. Loys

We enjoy a broad range of physical activities and sports within our Sports and PE curriculum including:

Athletics, Tag Rugby, Basketball, Tennis, Gym, Netball, Dance and Football.

In addition to timetabled provision as viewed on our class pages, we engage in a broad range of sports enrichment activities and initiatives to support our pupils in their physical learning and development. Pupils in Years 5 and 6, take up the Bikeability challenge with Cycling England. Our KS2 pupils are also offered courses in Young Sports Leadership training, as well as opportunities to experience a broad range of activities alongside our School Sports Partnership with Chenderit School.

Over the years we have offered a wide range of sports activities and extra curricular clubs, and are fortunate to have a large school hall to accommodate these. Activities have included;

  • Hot Shots Basketball
  • Gymnastics
  • Secret Garden Dance
  • Multi-skills with Pacesetters.

Our strong partnership with Chenderit School Sports Team ensures that our pupils have the opportunity to engage in cluster competitions including; Cross Country, Sports Hall Athletics, Football, Multi-skills events, Gymnastics and much more. Here, they are not only ambassadors for St. Loys but strive to achieve as individuals with a thirst for self-improvement and a drive to do their best. We have welcomed their successes over the last year in Football and Sports Hall Athletics where we placed in the top 3 schools and more recently in Cross Country where one of our runners placed 8th.

The Daily Mile

We participate in the Daily Mile initiative and our pupils are maintaining their enthusiasm for their run, walk or jog each day….for more info see https://thedailymile.co.uk/

The Great Outdoors

At St Loys we recognise the benefits to children’s physical and mental well-being when opportunities are presented for learning outdoors. We are fortunate to be situated in a rural location where we can actively engage with our physical education, including walks, gardening and outdoor PE.

St Loys allotment is home to our Gardening Club and all pupils have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of tending to this.
