Physical Education is aimed at developing pupils’ physical competence and confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It promotes physical skillfulness and development, and an understanding of the body in action.
The children face different challenges as individuals and as part of groups and teams. The learning of rules for team games is an important element; pupils are taught these rules at an early age. Good sportsmanship is fundamental in all team sports. Emphasis is put on the inclusion of every pupil.
Football and netball are the key sports and are taught alongside hockey, rounders and athletics. In fine weather, the children are often taken to the nearby park and the Faraday Sport's Day is currently held at Thames Barrier Park.
Faraday school was recently awarded a Sport England grant which has further improved sporting facilities and provided, a multi-use games surface, goals, hoops and a climbing wall.
Our Sports Day galleries show how enthusiastic our pupils are about physical activity.
