PE and sport at Shire Oak, including swimming
At Shire Oak we follow the National Curriculum for teaching PE (physical education). Our children access a broad PE curriculum and also have the option to participate in our school teams or in extra-curricular sport. All of Year 2 swim three times a week in the summer term in an intensive course. They then swim once a week during Year 3 and some children may continue in Year 4 if they have not yet achieved a good level of competence. We aim for all children to leave Shire Oak with at least one physical activity that they love. We currently receive additional sports funding from the government; please see our PE and Sport Funding document for further information.
