School Sport

School Sport includes the wider opportunities available in sport at school, outside of curriculum physical education. These could include extra-curricular sports sessions, Sainsbury's School Games and holiday sports clubs run by the school. Comprehensive school sport provision provides a wide range of opportunities for pupils to further develop skills acquired in physical education by offering specialism or competition, whilst encouraging continued activity in a community setting.

  • Are pupils offered opportunities to expand other skills such as leadership and communication?
  • Is school sport provision open and accessed by all pupils?
