Physical Education

Physical Education at Sir Henry Fermor

Physical education is an essential component of our school curriculum and inspires children to not only take pride in their overall fitness and health but to also inspire them to take part in competitive sports and games. P.E. at Fermor provides pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness, coordination and wellbeing. We offer children with plenty of opportunities to take part in extra curricular sporting events and clubs which support the children in embedding values such as respect and kindness. 


P.E. is taught for two hours each week, one of those hours is dedicated to swimming. We ensure that the children are exposed to a range of sports which all encourage the progression of a range of skills, fitness, flexibility, team work as well as developing a good understanding of why it is so important to keep fit and healthy. Throughout the day, the children are given opportunities to stay active, through the use of 'body breaks' in class and the Daily Mile.

Swimming at Sir Henry Fermor

We are extremely fortunate at Sir Henry Fermor to have our own swimming pool and are supported by our fantastic swimming instructor, Mrs Russell! It is our aim to get every child under the age of ten confidently swimming 25 metres. With this aim in mind, we will endeavour to have our youngest cohort, EYFS, swimming every week to support their confidence in water. This year we are now able to offer extra booster sessions for years 5 and 6.


In order for swimming sessions to run smoothly here at Fermor, we need to have as many parent volunteers to support our children. Please email the office, or let your child's class teacher know through a message in the contact book or speak to the teacher at pick up/drop off. We would require you to have been DBS checked first as this makes it much easier to support our children.


EYFS: Wednesday afternoons, from term 2.

Year 1: Friday afternoons, alternate classes each week.

Year 2: Monday afternoons in terms 1, 3 and 6

Year 3: Tuesday afternoons, alternate classes each week.

Year 4: Thursday afternoons, alternate classes each week. 

Year 5: Booster sessions in term 5, Monday afternoons

Year 6: Booster sessions in term 4, Monday afternoons
