PE provision at Lark Hill
All PE lessons at Lark Hill are planned or taught by a PE specialist teacher, Mr Andrew Quigley with additional support from external specialist, currently a dance teacher and a taekwondo instructor. We provide a high quality PE curriculum for Reception to Year 6 covering a wide range of sports during lesson time as well as sport specific after school clubs. Sports covered in after school clubs: athletics, basketball, fencing, rounders, volleyball, football, table tennis, handball, rugby and dance.
Our school swimming champion is Andrew Quigley.
As a school, we have to report on the amount of Year 6 pupils who can swim 25 metres competently; use a range of strokes and perform self-rescue in different water situations. Due to the National Lockdown in March 2020, this information is not available.
Lark Hill has achieved the Silver Kitemark for the last three years, starting the PE specialist delivering curriculum PE the year prior to the Sport premium grant. The school is using the School Games Kitemark system to look for ways to improve and achieve gold. Mr Quigley is looking to use the school website more to improve communication with families about PE, competitions and after school sports clubs.
