P.E. & School Sport
P.E. at Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham’s CEVAP School plays a vital part of everyday school life.
All pupils have two hours of P.E. timetabled each week to cover the six main areas of the National Curriculum which are: Dance, Gymnastics, Games, Swimming, Athletics and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities (OAA). We teach swimming to children in Year 3,4,5 and 6 at the swimming pool at Framlingham College, with 'taster' sessions in Year 2. A healthy lifestyle is regularly promoted.
In addition to the curriculum, the children can participate in numerous lunch time and after school sports clubs which may include Running, Tag-Rugby, Games, Football, Hockey, Rounders, Netball, Dance, Cricket, Basketball, and Tennis. A selection of clubs are offered at different times throughout the school year.
Fun, enjoyment, confidence, competence and self-esteem are the forefront of our PE delivery. Children in Nursery, Reception and KS1 develop the fundamental skills such as aiming and throwing, balance, co-ordination, control, and movement. In KS2 children can use these fundamental skills to develop their knowledge and understanding of Invasion Games such as Football, Basketball, Netball, Tag-Rugby and Hockey. These skills are also transferrable to striking and fielding games such as Cricket and Rounders, together with net games such as Tennis and Volleyball.
Children are given the opportunity to participate in the School Games. As a school we have enjoyed much success competing at county, regional and national level. On a regular basis school fixtures are arranged in many sports which enables the children to be proud to represent their school. We also organise House Competitions.
In addition to the clubs offered at school, many of our pupils attend local clubs, click here to see our Local Club Links page
