Physical Education – Mrs M. Pritchard

At Cotteridge, Children have a fantastic range of opportunities in order to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of a variety of sporting contexts to promote and maintain a healthy, physical lifestyle. 

Through a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, our children strive towards success, driven by our embedded School Games values of Respect, Determination, Teamwork, Passion, Self-Belief and Honesty. 

Across Key Stages 1 & 2, children actively participate and enjoy units such as Fitness, multi-skills, Outdoor and Adventurous pursuits and a variety of invasion games, as well as areas such as Dance and Gymnastics. Children are able to apply skills taught in inter-house competitions and extra-curricular clubs.

Children in Year 5 swim for a term and are able to develop their confidence, technique and stamina throughout the duration of the unit. We also offer booster sessions in the summer term for any Year 6 children who have yet to achieve 25 meters. 

At Cotteridge, we offer students the opportunity to develop physical confidence which contributes to their overall health and fitness. Additionally, allowing pupils to engage in sports and other activities that involve competition can foster character growth and reinforce our Cotteridge values.
