We aim to:
- Promote a healthy lifestyle
- Encourage a love of physical activity
- Develop good sportsmanship and leadership skills.
Dance, gymnastics, outside sports and swimming are statutory elements of the Primary Curriculum. All of these forms of physical activity are integral to our Creative Curriculum and are used to develop children’s confidence, competence, character, creativity and co-ordination.
Children at Creswell take part in at least 2 hours of PE a week and sometimes longer periods of activity. PE lessons are taught by class teachers and some specialist PE teachers (E.G. 5/60 and dance). Sometimes we welcome external coaches to teach alongside our staff team.
In Year 5 and 6 the children travel to Clowne swimming pool and are taught to swim by qualified swimming instructors.
In the Summer Term all children participate in the rounders tournament.
Sports Clubs and Competitions
We have a wide range of sports clubs at Creswell running at lunch time and after school. We currently have a football club, running club and basketball club, more are often on offer.
