PE and Sports Premium
At Great Kimble, we aim to provide a variety of PE and sports activities for our children so they learn different skills and enjoy a wide variety of games and sports.
We try to ensure that your child has at least two hours of physical activities a week. PE takes place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Reception pupils have regular ‘physical’ sessions.
PE kit is required throughout the week so it is essential that your child has a pair of shorts, T-shirt, sweatshirt (preferably not the one they wear in the classroom) and trainers in school at all times.
Marking of PE kit is essential. Each year our lost property box is overflowing by October and we are unable to return items without your support. If you have second hand uniform, please make sure your child’s name is clearly written over the top of the previous owner.
If your child takes their kit home after a sports club please ensure that it is returned the following day. During the winter months, black jogging bottoms are also required.
The school participates in both the Princes Risborough Liaison Group sports and also Haddenham Area Schools Sports Partnership. This enables all of our pupils the opportunity to engage in competitive sports with children their age from a variety of local schools.
