Fordham Primary School

Physical Education

We are committed to giving children over two hours of PE a week as well as access to a wide range of additional sporting activities.  Competitive sport is valued and children are taught about sportsmanship. 

The school pays into the Witchford Sports Partnership who in turn organise appropriate coaching, high quality teacher CPD and a range of competitions for children of all ages.  We also have coaches who come into school on a daily basis to support active lifestyles. The children in Year 6 are also attending The Hive, Ely for swimming lessons.

Some of the Year 6 children apply to be a member of the Sports Crew. They help to develop, organize and promote school sport and intra-school competitions within Fordham. They help our with events such as Sports Day, run clubs at lunchtime for the pupils and help out in lessons by organizing equipment or leading warm-ups.

The children moved around the activities in their house teams competing against another team at each activity. All of the children showed great determination, resilience and teamwork.
