PE and Sport


At Rougham Primary school we believe that physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others. Through sport and other physical activities our children will learn about their responsibilities both as individuals and members of groups and teams. They learn to cooperate and to compete fairly, understanding their own and other’s roles.


Children in Key Stage 1 and 2 receive two hours of PE a week. The Reception Class have unlimited access to their outdoor environment all day every day as well as a planned PE lesson each week. In additional to these planned PE lessons, physical activity and sport take place at other times in school: 

  • Daily Mile - each KS 2 class participates in the Daily Mile at some point during the day.
  • In lessons - use of, brain breaks etc.
  • Playtime and lunchtime - our Sports Coach, along with our Peer Mentors and MDSAs set-up equipment to encourage active play, this is in addition to our 'Gym Trail' and outdoor play apparatus
  • Sports & physical activity clubs - we run a vast array of clubs throughout the year
  • Competitions - we participate in local and regional competition
  • Other events - e.g. Bikeability, dance events


We have a qualified Sports Coach who assists teachers in the teaching, planning and assessment of PE to support their professional development.
