A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

At Swinefleet Primary School we expect both teachers and pupils to take part in P.E in appropriate clothing.
Black shorts, white t-shirt and bare feet (unless stated by the Class Teacher).
Children should wear a PE kit and pumps or trainers weather depending. It is also recommended that in cold weather children have jogging bottoms and sweatshirt, as some PE lessons may be outdoor.
Any jewellery, including watches must be removed before taking part in any PE lessons, including swimming because of personal risk and danger to others or self. Teachers cannot take out or put in earrings. Any item of jewellery that cannot be removed must be taped over with a plaster by the child.
Every July we look forward to an afternoon of sport's day fun. The children compete in their house team's and the winner's are each given a medal and the Sport's Day Trophy decorated in their house colour's.
P.E lessons are taught at least twice a week with each class having their own timetable, which is subject to change. Please make sure that your child brings their PE kit in to school on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. If you are unsure please ask the Class Teacher or look on their class page for more information.
The school takes part in the local Dance Festival which takes place at The Junction in Goole. The children put in lots of practice with great enthusiasm and really enjoy entering the competition.
Each week we look forward to welcoming into school a professional rugby coach from Hull FC. The children learn a great deal about rugby as well as disipline's in other sport's. The children learn ball skill's and teamwork as well as developing their fitness skill's.
We also have regular visit's from the player's of the Hull FC 1st team who engage in Q & A session's with the whole school so the children develop a good understanding of professional sport.
As part of the curriculum, during March and April, children in years 3, 4 and 5 are transported to Goole Leisure Centre for swimming lessons. Classes are divided up into ability levels and all children receive a certificate for levels which they complete.
Any children who enter Year 6 unable to swim will be given additional lessons.
