At South Bank we are keen to give children the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in a range of different sporting activities. Our P.E. lessons are delivered by our sports coach, Miss McDonald. By using a dedicated sports coach, we feel we are providing a very high quality of instruction to all ages.
Assessments are completed after every half term by the coach and shared with the class teachers. This allows staff to monitor the progress children are making and the skills they are acquiring.
Additionally, children in KS2 attend swimming lessons at Eston Leisure Centre, taught by qualified swimming instructors.
A new initative we have also started is our Mid day mile. This is to coincide with the extra 30 minutes of exercise children are to complete a week.
Please find below the timetable for your child’s PE. lesson this year.
Monday – Y1/2 and Y2
Tuesday – SB2 and SB3
Wednesday – Y4 and Y3

PE Kit: Children need a pair of plimsolls or trainers, a pair of black shorts and a white T-shirt.
For swimming, children need a one-piece swimming costume (no bikinis) or swimming shorts (not below the knee) and a towel. Long hair must also be tied up. All jewellery is to be removed including earrings, a plaster can be brought in from home when children have just had their ears pierced.

Throughout the year, children compete with other schools within the Aspire Learning Partnership trust. Competitions are run in school time and include a large range of sporting activities.
We also have intra house competitions at the end of each term to complete the topic with a fun tournament competing for points for their house teams.
In the summer term, our children also compete within school at our annual Sports Day. Children compete to win points for their house teams. Parents are very welcome to come and support the event, but bring your trainers as there is always a highly competitive parents race!
