PE at Cranborne


At Cranborne, we believe that sport and PE are an integral part of our lives. The skills that are learnt and developed throughout primary school are fundamental to allowing children to reach their full potential in later life. Our teachers are committed to ensuring that children are well-equipped with these skills and attitudes.

P.E. is taught twice a week. This includes one indoor session (gymnastics and dance) and one outdoor session (invasion games, striking and fielding games, net and wall games and athletics). Year 4 will be attending swimming lessons at the, Furzefield Sports Centre, for weekly swimming lessons across the year. This is taught by trained swimming coaches and accompanied by our HLTAs and parent helpers. In Year 4 and 6, the children attend a residential school journey, where they develop their skills in outdoor and adventurous activities.

We are committed to upskilling class teachers in their P.E. subject knowledge and are using part of the Sports Premium government funding to allow teachers to work alongside skilled specialist teachers and coaches. Years 1 to 6 have benefited from working with a local coaching company, Primary Sporting Development (PSD), who have helped develop subject knowledge in gymnastics, dance and invasion games. 

We also take part in several local competitions, including sporting tournaments and leagues in: football, netball, tag rugby, hockey, cricket, tennis, athletics, rounders and speed stacking.
