Sports at Boundary

Sports at Boundary

At Boundary, we have the benefit of learning many different and wide ranging sports. In addition to our teacher led PE sessions, we have dedicated sports coaches who teaches our PE lessons to both the Infant and Junior classes every week, providing a high quality curriculum that inspires all children to succeed and excel and all with at least 2 hours of physical each week. Our children are physically confident and through sport are taught the importance of fairness and respect, good team-play and good sportsmanship.

 

 

We also regularly invite outside specialists into school to help in training our children in sports such as rugby, football, gymnastics, dance, tennis and cricket.

Our school has a strong commitment to developing fit, active and engaged children. In the Infants, children take part in less formal P.E. lessons which develop their skills in a range of different areas – such as running, catching, throwing, jumping, etc. In this way, children are given a solid grounding in the skills that they will need in order progress their learning in more formal sports as they move into Juniors.

Our children have the opportunity to develop their skills in a vast range of sports including football, cricket, netball, basketball, cycling, swimming, gymnastic, tag-rugby and cross country. Lessons are taught in line with upcoming competitions to ensure that children are given the best possible opportunity to represent our school in their chosen sport. Outside the curriculum, children are involved in a range of inter and intra- school sporting competitions that are held in conjunction with other schools and Blackpool Council.

In addition to our PE lessons we also have blocks of swimming lessons at Moorpark Leisure Centre for children in Year 4. We aim for every child to swim 25 metres or more by the time they leave us in Year 6 but we equally understand that confidence is immeasurable and achievement of the individual child is of equal importance and celebrated as such.

Both our school P.E. lessons and our extra-curricular sports provisions designed to enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to accept responsibility for actions, develop leaders who understand the importance of fair and balanced judgements. Whether it be through choice of challenge or of participation in our numerous extra-curricular clubs and opportunities, students are given the freedom to make choices that reflect the importance of their individual liberty and mutual respect, understanding and tolerance is taught and encourage through ‘fair play’ in PE and Sport sessions.
