PE at Braintcroft E-Act Primary Academy
In EYFS our children are constantly taking part in activities to aid their physical development in accordance with the EYFS Early Learning Goals. The children are also taught once a week during PPA time by Mr Carter our specialist PE Teacher.
From Year 1 to Year 6, our teachers have one lesson a week with their class and one with our Specialist PE Teacher. All areas of the curriculum are covered which include:
- Outdoor Adventurous Activity (Key Stage 2)
- Swimming (Key Stage 2)
Our high quality, varied and balanced curriculum has contributed to the academy gaining the AFPE Quality Mark which expires in 2020.
We also offer a wide range of lunchtime and after school activities such as football, gymnastics and basketball. We work closely with our secondary, The Crest Academy on an after school programme which involves table tennis and boxing. Changes are made each term, for instance, cricket replaces gymnastics in the summer term.
The academy is also involved in a range of local competitions and events for which we have gained the School Games Award.
