At Park Hall Academy we are passionate about providing exciting opportunities for our children to take part in active learning. We value the importance of keeping children healthy and active and seek to promote this in all we do. Our commitment to Physical Education was recently recognised when we achieved the Silver Games Mark accreditation and we are currently working towards achieving Gold.
At Park Hall Academy the pupil sporting voice is represented by a Sports Crew which consists of pupil representatives from across KS2 and which is led by two Sports Ambassadors. These pupils play an important role in leading P.E. across the school through assisting in lessons and organising inter school and intra school sporting events.
As part of our curriculum every child receives two hours of Physical Education each week whether that be indoor P.E, outdoor Games or swimming lessons. We are committed to making sure that our children are exposed to high quality delivery by both our school staff and external coaching companies. As a school we have made a financial commitment to this by investing in first class training for our staff involving intensive practical sessions, planning support and team teaching to ensure that teaching and learning in P.E. is a strength across the school. Our team of Playground Leaders led by our committed Lunchtime Supervisors also ensure every child engages actively in games and activities each lunchtime.
All pupils also has access to a wide variety of enrichment opportunities including a vast programme of extra curriculum sporting clubs including; bubble-football, clay pigeon shooting, archery, fencing, football, tag rugby and mini-movers to name just a few.
