In September 2017, we launched The Daily Mile. Public Health England recommend that children aged between 5-18 have 60 minutes of exercise every day - at school, we are responsible for 30 of those minutes. The Daily Mile is an initiative set up to encourage children to become more active during the school day. The aim is to try to get children running or walking at least a mile a day. Research has shown that if a child is more active, they are able to concentrate more in lessons, meaning they have stronger attainment levels and make more progress.

Throughout the Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, the school aims to encourage its pupils to participate in a range of sports, particularly for the purposes of enjoyment and recreation. Opportunities are provided to grow and develop through dance, gymnastics, athletics, games, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities. At the same time, we aim to support those who wish to participate in inter-class, inter-school, local and county wide competitions to further these ambitions.
In PE, our pupils acquire knowledge, skills and understanding, develop their analytical and evaluation skills and learn to work both independently and collaboratively as a part of a team.
We have used the PE & Sports Premium to enhance the delivery of PE at Forest Hall in Primary School.
Each class will get a block of gymnastics delivered by Gail Robson, a professional gymnastics coach, and we also work closely with the Newcastle United Foundation , who deliver the Premier League Primary Stars Program, and provide us with an after school club. The lessons are delivered by fully qualified coaches, and focus on all aspects of the PE curriculum, and along with lessons taught by our teachers, help us to build and improve the children's sporting ability.
We are also a proud member of the English Schools' Football Association.
