We are passionate about PE and sport at Fairchildes. Having fun and being active through physical activity is essential for children’s health, development and wellbeing.
Children achieve their expected 2 hours of physical activity a week through a varied, progressive and fun curriculum. PE lessons are inclusive and meet individual needs. PE lessons follow the guidance set out in the National Curriculum in England Framework Document (2013), supplemented by resources from ‘The PE Hub’.
In addition, several year groups receive ‘Street dance’ lessons from an expert teacher each week.
In Year 4, children have weekly swimming lessons taught by an expert swimming coach.
For some children PE is when they truly excel and meet their potential. We ensure that these abilities are met and catered for through our extra Sports ‘gifted and talented’ provision.
Throughout the year, children also take part in various sports and active events, such as ‘Games Day’, Inter-School Sports Day and National Sports Week.
All children have opportunities to experience and try out new sports on our special ‘taster days’. These may include Archery, Korfball, Boccia and Volleyball.

We believe children should be able to experience competition and we are proud that our school enters regional and national competitions such as athletics, football and swimming.
We believe children should have the opportunity to watch real, live sport. Some of our children have had the chance to watch tennis at the O2, cricket at the Oval and indoor cycling at the London Velodrome.
