Physical Education & Sport
At Blundell’s Pre-Prep we aim to deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. In the Early Years, children are taught to be active and interactive, and to develop their coordination, control, and movement. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports a healthy and active lifestyle. Within their P.E. lessons, the children are given the opportunity to work as individuals, in a group or as part of a team. Pupils develop core movement, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and co-ordination. As the children progress we aim to give them opportunities to compete in sport and other activities in order to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Weekly P.E. lessons cover the above and a comprehensive Games programme is under taken by all. This is taught by specialist P.E. and Games teachers with additional support from former professional sport people.
P.E. lessons cover sports including; squash, badminton, tennis, lacrosse, gymnastics, dance, basketball, handball and rock climbing.
House competitions are held each term. Sports Day is held for ALL pupils.
