Sport at Bishop Ellis

At Bishop Ellis, we really value sport and our aim is to get every child active. The children are given opportunities to engage in quality first teaching in curriculum PE sessions; virtual competitions within in school and where possible, external competitions and opportunities to complete personal best challenges.

Every year, the school enters a number of inter-school sports’ competitions including netball, football, rugby, swimming, basketball and cross country for girls and boys.

Every class has two PE lessons per week and we ensure the PE curriculum is fully covered. All children from Year 2 – Year 6 usually have swimming lessons over the year and the school employs two qualified swimming coaches to run these sessions.

The Four Plus children also have a very active learning environment due to the new outdoor area. Therefore the children have plenty of opportunities to be outdoors throughout the day, subject to good weather, engaging in active learning. This is in addition to their organised PE curriculum sessions twice a week.
