'I just want to push the barriers and see what I can do and how far I can go. I am determined and driven.' - Usain Bolt

 Here at Newton Primary School, we are dedicated to raising the standards of PE across the school. We are committed to providing our children with an enriched curriculum which is based on: dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities. These include a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aim to cater for pupil’s needs and abilities.

Every pupil has the opportunity to participate in a fun, challenging and rewarding learning environment where pupils are encouraged to express themselves through physical activity. All children have at least 2 hours of PE a week. We are fortunate enough to have the use of outdoor and indoor space to conduct high quality PE lessons utilising a vast range of sporting equipment.

This page contains information about how PE is taught, extra-curricular activities and sporting events in the school. We hope you find it informative and useful.
