We promote competitive sport and passionately believe in promoting healthy living. To that end, sport is at the core of life at Queen’s Manor.
We provide a rich and varied PE curriculum, with many opportunities for participation in a range of physical activity.
Children have swimming lessons in Years 3 and 5 at Fulham Pools and tennis in Year 4 at Bishop’s Park. We cater for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor sports throughout the rest of the school, including gymnastics, dance, ball games and invasion games.
Children develop the skills, coordination and appropriate level of fitness to support them in making decisions about healthy living beyond primary school.
All children participate in two hours of PE per week. Within PE lessons children are encouraged not only to develop their physical skills, but also sportsmanship, fair play, communication and integrity.
Playtimes and after-school clubs offer children a wealth of opportunities to keep fit:
- Table tennis
- Skipping rope games
- Hula hoops
- Tag Rugby
The list is endless! Active lifestyles are also encouraged, with rewards for children who walk, cycle or scoot to school.
Within the local authority, and beyond, we participate in a range of competitive and ‘friendly’ sporting activities. This includes the annual Mayor’s Cup football tournament for Years 5 and 6, the Skittleball tournament for Years 3 and 4, as well as the swimming gala, Tag Rugby tournament, cross-country running and borough athletics.
We actively seek to create opportunities with other local schools for children with a range of ability and sporting prowess to participate competitively.
Our annual sports day is the highlight of our sporting calendar, with a competitive sporting carnival for all members of the school community. This is held during the summer term in one of the local parks and parents are always eager to join in!
