We believe PE & Sport at Cecil Road Primary and Nursery School play an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
Through PE & Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic excellence. All of our amazing PE and Sporting events are supported by all our staff.
Cecil Road Primary & Nursery Swimming Pool
At Cecil Road we are fortunate enough to have our own swimming pool which means our children throughout the year receive swimming lessons from Nursery to Year 6.
We have a large team of children play leaders that volunteer to give up their break and lunch times to organise games for our children.
The scheme is run by Mrs Gill, one of our teaching assistants, the preparation begins in year 5 when the children receive training on how and what games to set up for all the different aged children in school.
The play leaders play a very important part in ensuring that our children are able to enjoy active and happy playtimes. Also if there are any worries or upsets then our children know that the play leaders are there to help.
School Games Award
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
We have now received the Platinum Award and we are the first school in Gravesham to receive this.
