Physical Education (PE)

At Rothwell St Mary’s Physical Education is a key element, which is incorporated into everyday life. As a school we aim to motivate students to maintain a balance between their school work and Physical Education. Physical Education is an essential part of healthy living especially for children who are at school. We believe that Physical Education enhances children’s ability to remain focused and increases concentration. Our students are promoted to take part in activities along with their school work, so this will help in maintaining their healthy bodies and minds.

We are very fortunate to have Premier Sports who work with all our children and staff. They also provide before and after school sporting skills practise.During our P.E. lessons and after school skills practise the children have the opportunity to learn new skills and build teamwork skills.

We practise our sporting skills through games which include:

  • Netball
  • Gymnastics
  • Multi sports
  • Hockey
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Football
  • Basket ball
  • Athletics
  • Quiddich
  • Fencing
  • Archery
  • Cricket

We have been very busy collecting the Team GB stickers for the Aldi’s ‘Kit For Schools’ competition. As a school we have managed to fill our poster full of the GB stickers and now will be entered into the competition and have the chance to win £20,000 to kick start a health legacy for pupils and a new sports kit. Thank you to everyone who brought in stickers.
