St Egwin’s PE department prides itself on delivering high-quality, inclusive PE. All Key Stage 3 PE teachers are specialist trained, ensuring that pupils learn good technique, stamina, determination and sportsmanship during their time with us.
Through our PE curriculum, we endeavour to engender the values of Respect (to peers and referees), Tolerance (when things don’t go our way), Integrity (to perform with honour), Humility (to accept defeat), Honesty (in sport), Loyalty (to teams and team mates) and Perseverance (to succeed).
Each pupil at St Egwin’s takes part in 3 PE lessons per week. This gives a total of 180 minutes of physical education, far in excess of the government minimum recommendation.
Our sporting ethos at St Egwin’s is to endeavour to help each pupil to find their ‘sport for life’. It is for this reason that we offer such a broad and extensive curriculum that evolves to reflect the nature of modern sport.

Our assessment procedures ask pupils to look at their own and their peers performance within a ‘Head, Heart, Hands’ approach based on the following criteria:
At the start of each year, pupils are guided to select appropriate performance-targets then, with specialist teacher guidance and skilfully planned, challenging lessons each child is enabled to achieve at their own pace. Their success and areas for development are reported to parents three times per annum.
We enjoy excellent facilities both indoor and out with our 3-badminton-court multi-sports hall; our rugby & football field; our multi-purpose top field, and our tarmacced double netball court.
We are well represented in all district sporting competitions and some county level events in which we often enjoy success. Our Young Leader teams in Key Stage 3 are well respected for their assistance in running local first school sports days, festivals and School Games events.
