At Longwood we have been awarded the School Games GOLD award for the last two years. We recognise the importance and impact of high quality PE and school sport and the skills and positive values of sport are integrated into the whole school ethos. Sport at Longwood fosters positive relationships within teams, with other primary and secondary schools, enabling our children to experience competition in a range of contexts. We offer a PE curriculum which provides our children with the confidence to try new activities and develop their existing skills. Our children experience leadership and coaching opportunities allowing them to expand their knowledge and understanding of PE and games. Our children are engaged, motivated and challenged to achieve their very best.
We offer a wide range of after school sports clubs for children, in addition to their weekly PE lessons, allowing children to practise and develop their sport and feel part of a team. Children who demonstrate commitment and positive behaviours are provided with opportunities to represent the school and their achievements are celebrated within the school and with parents and carers.
