  • Gymnastics (Floor work, apparatus)
  • Athletics
  • Team building games
  • Dance
  • Swimming in KS2
  • Outdoor and adventure opportunities (Year 6 Arthog)

Pupils experience two hours of PE a week. Alongside teachers, Embrace, our specialist sports coaches, provide a high quality experience for all pupils in line with the 2014 National Curriculum for PE and work with teaching staff to develop their skills and expertise in the subject area. 


At St Giles’, we encourage healthy competition so that our children put into practice the values of good sportsmanship and teamwork. We participate in school and county events throughout the academic year, which support children in building resilience, confidence and mutual respect.
