Sport and PE
Physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others.
Through sport and other physical activities at Tattershall Primary, our children will learn about their responsibilities both as individuals and members of groups and teams. They learn to cooperate and to compete fairly, understanding their own and other’s roles.
Our aim is that; through physical education we teach and develop physical competence, an appreciation of skilled and creative performances, and understanding of basic principles of ‘fair play’ and improve inter personal skills.
Swimming and water safety is an extremely important part of the PE curriculum at Tattershall Primary and another way of helping children to lead healthy and active lives. We are delighted that this year, 100% of KS2 children have participated in 12 weeks of swimming, which included swimming lessons and learning how to safely self-rescue.
Within our Year 6 cohort 70% of children were able to swim 25m or further.
