At SMSP we encourage children to be healthy and active every day. All children all take part in high-quality PE and Games lessons, having opportunities to learn fundamental skills and movements in a wide variety of sports. These include gymnastics, football, netball, dance, athletics, tag rugby and many other competitive and non-competitive sports. Life skills are developed to include co-operation, competition, good sportsmanship, self-discipline, learning to cope with winning and losing and a desire to keep fit and healthy for future well-being.
We provide a wide variety of opportunities for children to take part in extracurricular sporting activities. We offer a range of sports including football, basketball, netball, cricket, rugby, rounders, basketball, athletics, swimming, hockey and dance.
We are lucky to have a number of partnerships with local sporting organisations. The children frequently are able to receive professional sporting tuition, encouraging the children to try new sports. We regularly take part in inter-school competitions installing values of endurance, commitment and teamwork.
During the course of their time at SMSP the children will have the opportunity to compete in many of the organised competitive events within the Borough, e.g. netball and basketball competitions, girls’ and boys’ football matches, annual swimming gala, cross country, athletics and cricket tournaments.
We are also proud of all of our staff and children in their commitment to physical education being awarded the Gold Schools Games Mark 2017/18. This award highlights the whole school’s achievements across a variety of sports.
