Sainsbury's School Games Gold Mark AwardGOLD Kite Mark Award for PE

We are extremely proud to have achieved the GOLD standard Kite Mark award for our PE provision for three consecutive years.

The School Games Mark is an awards scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school. Ofsted use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework and schools can use it as a development tool to aid PE their teacher or Headteacher.

Steve, our PE teacher from South Coast Sports (SCS), supported by his apprentice Ross, teach excellent lessons across the school and improve not only the levels of physical activity of our children, but their skill and motivation levels too in an extensive variety of sports such as Basketball, Handball, Netball, Football, Tag Rugby, Cricket, Gymnastics, Hockey, Rounders, Tennis, & Athletics.

We aim for every child in Years 1-6 to take part in at least one physical activity club each week.  Our wide range of extremely popular sports and physical activity clubs includes Netball, Infant Ballet, Junior Street Dance, Fencing. Athletics, Infant & Junior Football, Stoolball, Infant Ball Games, Multi Sports, "Go Wild", Wacky Races (selected pupils) and Kinball (selected pupils), plus Cross Country & Cricket Clubs which run before school.

We actively encourage pupils to write match reports, as well as sharing their achievements from sports/physical activities they are involved in outside school. A selection of these can be found below and on the PE noticeboard in school.

Handcross Hall of Fame

Are you a horse rider, golfer or rock climber? A Thai boxer or martial artist? Play badminton, bowls, cricket or tennis? Are you a dancer or diver? Or perhaps you have other sporty interests that you enjoy out of school. We would love to hear all about them in our "Handcross Hall of Fame" here and on the PE noticeboard - please talk to Mrs Aylett or Mrs Cribb if you, or a group of likeminded pupils who take part in the same sport too, would like to feature.
