PE at Higham Ferrers Junior School

At Higham Ferrers Junior School, our aim is to offer a wide range of physical activities and sporting experiences. Each year, children will have the opportunity to take part in high quality PE lessons based around games, gymnastics, dance, athletics and swimming.

We are very lucky to have a specialist PE coach who is responsible for covering these aspects of the PE National Curriculum.

Throughout their time in the school, children will also have the opportunity to take part in outdoor and adventurous activities in lessons and during a residential visit to Osmington Bay, Dorset in Year 4, giving children the chance to develop their problem solving skills, independence and social skills.

Our PE lessons are differentiated to ensure they are accessible to all ages and abilities, including catering for the gifted and talented, so that the needs of all children are met.

Children also have the opportunity to attend both breakfast and after school clubs which are run both by our coach and outside coaching companies. These include football, dodgeball, basketball, dance and gymnastics.

We are passionate about competitive sport and regularly take part in inter-school competitions within the Rushden and Higham cluster of schools. We continue to take very successful teams of talented sporting individuals to festivals for sports such as football, basketball and gymnastics as well as more unusual sports such as handball.

Our children are also extremely proud to have been crowned District Junior Athletics Champions for three years in a row!
