We aim to develop agility, physical co-ordination, fitness, confidence and enjoyment through physical activities.
Farnborough Road Junior School encourages all children to participate in sport in order to develop an appreciation of teamwork, a respect of and tolerance of the abilities of others and an awareness of opportunities to enjoy fulfilling leisure activities.
The P.E programme is designed to make full use of the school’s facilities of specialized 3G Space for Sport, designated ‘no-mow’ and ‘caged’ areas and the PE hall, and includes development of skills using large and small apparatus, ball skills, team games and dance.
Health and Fitness are key to healthy lifestyles and this year we have introduced a new range of circuit skill based activities to challenge pupils and improve their fitness. Swimming takes place for all children, at Swimscool for Farnborough pupils. All pupils attend for a 4 week block which incorporates an hours intense teaching of swimming. Priority is given to increasing water confidence and ensuring that all children learn to swim. A high percentage of children develop their swimming techniques to award level.
The school’s high reputation in competitive sports is maintained through extra-curricular activity and children regularly participate in local competitions. Extra-curricular activities are available in football, netball, rugby, athletics, gymnastics, cross country, tri golf, tennis and cricket. A number of activities are provided in partnership with fully qualified coaches who are brought in to provide expert tuition such as fencing and judo. Team games are played in season, both within the school and against teams from neighbouring schools.
