PE at Roger de Clare

PE at Roger de Clare

At Roger de Clare, we ensure our children are as active as possible throughout the school day.  In addition to 2 hours high quality PE led by class teachers, coaches or games leads, we offer a range of extra curricular activities over the week (please see the extra-curricular activities page). 

From September 2021, and as part of our response to the Covid pandemic, we are offering all children from Reception upwards the opportunity to have an additional 30 minutes of planned physical exercise in the weekly curriculum.  We know that improved and increased physical health has a direct and positive impact on mental health by helping get us ready to learn.  

Our active area offers an additional space for pupils to extend their skills from the weekly games lesson. 

We enjoy competing alongside our friends in the Rib Valley through Interschool Sports, Tag Rugby Festivals and other opportunities.  

Through our work with the North East Herts School Sports Partnership, we are proud to be able to offer a range of specialised coaches throughout the year, work with other colleagues around the local area through interschool competitions and receive support and training to ensure professional development for staff.  Through this collaboration, we have been awarded our School Games Silver Mark and Mrs Woods is an advocate Headteacher for PE in Primary Schools, working with the Youth Sports Trust and Sport England. 

This has allowed us to access the Developing Well Programme run by the Youth Sports Trust.  Ian Rose, Judo Paralympian, has run six sessions at the school linked to growth mindset, effective communication and coping with stress.  We hope to continue our partnership with Ian.
