Physical Education

“Here at Parkhill Junior School, we encourage all children to live an active and healthy lifestyle. This helps them to concentrate and enjoy learning during class time as well as understanding their health behaviours outside of the classroom. In order to ensure children have a healthy and active lifestyle we have a wide range of sporting equipment as well as external coaches who teach their knowledge and skills to the children. Being a rights respecting school, we understand how our health and well-being is important and encourage participation in a wide range of physical activities. Enjoy Learning and staying healthy together!”

PE Vision
Every child should be confident, enjoy and participate in a range of sports actively with increasing competitive aspects by the end of Year 6. In the future, the aim will be to provide some competitive team matches against other schools (RRS articles 3, 15, 28, 29, 30 & 31).

  • Every child should be respected relative to our own natural abilities and stimulated to reach our full potential given our social, physical, mental and economic parameters (RRS article 29).
  • Continue to discover new barriers to learning about our physical capabilities and challenge ourselves in a competitive but friendly environment where we all progress together (RRS articles 3 and 30).
  • Our vision is for everyone to be confident, independent and motivated towards an enriched healthy lifestyle and to be actively participating in sport (RRS articles 15 and 31).
Healthy Opportunities

We have a wide range of opportunities for children to stay active here at Parkhill Junior School. At lunchtimes, they have a variety of energetic activities to choose from including: tennis, basketball, table tennis, cricket, badminton, football, a climbing frame and an outdoor gym. At the start of this term we also sent out a fitness letter that explains what we do at Parkhill to promote a healthy and active environment (Please attach the fitness letter onto this).
