Physical Education has a high profile at Princecroft so that all children have the opportunity to excel and succeed in physical activities and competitive sport. Through PE and sport, the children learn to stay fit and healthy and hopefully develop a passion and enthusiasm for physical activity that will last a lifetime. We also believe that opportunities to compete in sporting activities help build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.
We offer high-quality physical experiences to help inspire the children in different areas of sport. A key part of our 11 by 11 experiences is to ensure every child at Princecroft School has sporting opportunities including: representing the school in a major sport/PE event; performing at the Dance Festival in The Forum in Bath; learning to cycle safely through the Bikeability programme; and being able to swim confidently through swimming lessons from Reception to Year 3.
Our lessons from nursery to Year 6 are led by PE and sports specialist teachers who also offer a range of lunchtime and after-school clubs for the children to enjoy. We have school football and netball teams and regularly compete in sporting activities with other local schools. We are delighted to have strong links with local sporting organisations and many of our children are engaged with sporting clubs in our community in Warminster.
We have superb sporting facilities at the school including a new school hall and extensive outdoor grassed areas for the children to enjoy. Our children are fully involved with organising and planning sport at Princecroft through our Sports Council, and we have Sports Ambassadors who represent the school and help other children develop a passion for physical activity.
We are proud to have been awarded the School Games Gold Award in recognition of the sporting opportunities offered at Princecroft.
