Thameside Primary is unique in having our very own PE team. PE lessons, extra curricular sports clubs and competitipns are highly anticipated by pupils and staff alike across the school.  


The School's Co-operative values are met through PE in the following ways:


Responsibility for following rules


Engagement in healthy activities


Success in our own and our team's achivements


Pride in representing our school and trying our best


Enjoyment of activities


Care for all participants


Team-work and togetherness 

Pupils in both key stages are assessed on a half termly basis and get the opportunity to self-assess and discover how to improve by using our 'next steps' programme. 

Assessments 

In Key Stage 2, pupils are given the opportunity to consolidate their existing skills and learn how to refine and adapt them to improve their effectiveness.

They learn how to work as part of a team and overcome problem solving activities. Pupils take more responsibility for their learning and are encouraged to seek and give feedback on their own and others' performances. They are also encouraged to seek and give feedback on their own performance and look at areas where they can improve.
