At Eastnor Primary we are very proud our achievements in sport. We are the smallest school in the Ledbury cluster but we compete in a variety of sports in a range of fixtures, tournaments and competitions both locally and further afield.
During the 2015/16 academic year we won the cluster Netball tournament, hosted at Ledbury Primary School. We were also successful at the Rounders' Tournament and brought home the much coveted winner’s cup.
Mrs Kate Dawe, our specialist PE teacher, works in school every week and expertly supports our teaching staff to ensure all children receive at least two hours of high quality physical education. This high quality provision, from the age of 4, means that our children develop confidence, good technique and high levels of skill in a range of sports.
Our PE curriculum aims to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in a range of sports and is tailored to complement the school and its environment. We have a unique orienteering module where children use the Castle grounds to improve their navigational skills using a map and compass. During the summer the children receive specialist Cricket training at Eastnor Cricket Club and spend an afternoon at Eastnor Bowling Club.
In all PE lessons pupils:-
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sport and activities
- know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified
- discuss the importance of leading healthy, active lives
All children in school also take part in swimming lessons each year. A number of our children have gone on to become members of swimming clubs in Ledbury and Hereford.
