All children have access to PE at The Hayes. Children in Key Stage 1 develop their enthusiasm for movement in Dance, Games and Gymnastic activities. They also take part in weekly swimming lessons at our own pool under the direction of our full time, qualified swimming instructor.
Children in Key Stage 2 develop the skills taught in Key Stage 1. In addition they take part in Athletic activities and outdoor and adventurous activities. Throughout the school we encourage the children to work collaboratively and to have a keen team spirit.
We have a purpose built heated indoor swimming pool and are fortunate in having a fully qualified instructor. All children swim fortnightly for 40 minutes and by Year 6 are competent swimmers.
At the end of 2021, 98% of our children in Year 6 could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. 98% could swim front crawl and back stroke and 96% could swim breaststroke. 98% could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Games and PE are Alive!
