At New City, P.E. plays a significant role in school life. Children in all year groups take part in two hours of high quality P.E. lessons a week, one of which is taught by our sports coach, Mr Archer. Children have one indoor lesson a week where they focus on skills including flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through gymnastics, dance and athletic lessons.

Children also take part in one outdoor P.E. lesson a week where they learn the skills to take part in competitive games both individually and in teams. These include sports such as tennis, football, netball, basketball and a range of other sports. Children in year 3 and year 5 also take part in swimming lessons for a term during the year.

This is to develop their confidence and skills in the water over a range of strokes. We believe that taking part in these activities gives the children the life skills of working as a team, resilience and meeting challenges.

We are actively developing links with other schools through inter-schools sports competitions. These links are further developed through our sport partnership with Cumberland Secondary School. We employ coaches to provide specialist training in specific sports and we provide a variety of high quality equipment to engage and support all of our pupils.
