Physical Education

Physical Education


At both Ashwater and Halwill our children enjoy a full and varied PE Curriculum that introduces them to a broad range of team and  individual sports. Teachers and PE specialists provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in a range of physically-demanding activities. The importance for pupils becoming physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness is always valued and encouraged as part of their learning.


Our PE curriculum also aims to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport. At a school level, all children take part in our annual sports days, which are always enjoyed greatly by the children and their families. Intra house sporting competitions are planned for and enjoyed by the children.


Across both schools, as part of the admission process, your child will be allocated into a house team. At Ashwater this will either be Trees (green) or Rivers (blue), while at Halwill school children are either allocated into the Owls (blue) or Bells (red) team. We ask the children to wear a t-shirt to match the colour of their team as indicated in brackets. We firmly believe, this element of 'healthy competition', enables children to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect outside of the normal classroom setting.


As a further extension of this,  well established links have been made with Holsworthy College, who offer a variety of opportunities for pupils to take part in different competitions, ranging from cross country, athletics, football, multi-skills and aqua-thon events. 


Pupils are given the opportunity to have swimming lessons at Ruby Oak Swimming pool - why not take a look at their website? They offer a range of classes and lessons. 


A varied range of clubs are offered throughout the year that are accessible to all the children. Examples of which are Multi Skills, Hockey, Dance and Football.  Please visit the clubs page to see what they have been up to.
