Physical Education


Pupils have two hours of PE timetabled per week through which we develop core skills to enable children to become well rounded sportsmen and women as set out in the new National Curriculum. Children are given the opportunity to swim during KS2 and we aim for all pupils leaving the school to be able to swim at least 25m. All pupils also have the opportunity to complete the National Cycling Proficiency scheme in KS2.

All pupils take part in a range of tournaments and sports festivals both within school (Intra-competitions) between year groups and with other schools (Inter-competitions). Find out more about our Intra and Inter competitions below.


 Please use your child's year group page to find out what they are learning about each half term!

Gymnastics Festival

Coxhoe held its annual Gymnastics Festival and Class 7 have wrote recounts on their festival experience.

When I arrived in the hall I was tingling of excitement. Excitedly I skipped to my space and gazed around the cramped room. Suddenly, the first wasn’t us. We watched the other performers sparkle. Next I thought it was class 11 but it was us. I was excited. I jumped up and walked gracefully to my space. We were all waiting for the sports crew to start the music…


Yesterday when I came into the hall I noticed that the hall seemed bigger. I was excited when I arrived in the big hall. Just then, I was full of excitement. Next, I skipped in the hall. When I sat down I heard people talking and chattering. I could see blue mats, children and teachers. I skipped and… I slipped on something and nearly tripped over onto Leah’s back. It was Class 6’s turn to show theirs. They were dancing to ‘Do you want to build a snow man?’. It was cool. Magically after that it was our turn…


Just then we walked into the hall nervously but happily. Everyone was having a chat to each other. Moments later the first class was announced!.... but it was Class 6. After, we waited anxiously for the next class to perform then they announced it was Class 9! Then it was Class 10`s turn. All of the performances had being brilliant. Then without warning, it was our turn! We speedily went into our spaces…
