Physical Education



Through our teaching of P.E, we aim to encourage children to keep active, healthy and motivated. The P.E curriculum is split up into dance, gymnastics and invasion games. Our school offers a wide range of fun extra-curricular clubs. The children have many links with the local community, including visits to Ennerdale sports centre and Monkey Bizness. The School benefits from having sports and dance coaches coming in on a regular basis. Outside of school you can happily keep your child fit and active by cycling, swimming, going for walks and playing ball games.

Sports and Clubs

St Andrew’s provides a wide range of extra curricular clubs.  Mr Huckstep takes the children for regular football, rugby and keep fit sessions throughout the year and staff at the school take pride in providing the children with a balanced curriculum, running clubs in a morning, lunchtime and after school for a variety of activities which come from the children’s ideas and needs.

Information of club numbers and attendance can be found on our PE Sports Funding page.


The school has had regular visits from a yoga coach during Dazzle on a Friday. She has shown the children how to relax, stretch and use different breathing techniques. The children thoroughly enjoy her sessions.


The school is very fortunate to have a dance teacher from one of the popular dance schools in Hull,  Gemma’s Gems. The dance coach works with all children on a weekly basis, developing the children’s confidence and dance skills. This has improved the boys dancing skills and has made them more engaged in dance sessions.


The school’s sports coach works with all classes including the Foundation Stage. Developing the children’s confidence and skills. She works closely with all teaching staff to develop staff training needs and enhance the PE curriculum. She takes the children for extra curricular club sessions which run throughout the year.

Here are some photographs of the children enjoying just some of our lunch time and after school clubs.

Mrs Fenton, our school sports coach, works with each year group to deliver their PE curriculum objectives. Here are some photographs of her coaching different skills:

Ways to help keep your child fit and healthy outside of school

  1. Walk, scooter or cycle to and from school together as often as possible.
  2. Build a den or treehouse with them in the school holidays. Or, under supervision, encourage them to climb a tree or two.
  3. Go roller skating, rollerblading or skateboarding, indoors or outside. In winter, go ice skating.
  4. Do an activity challenge together, such as training for a fun run or charity walk..
  5. Take the dog for a walk. If you don’t have one of your own, ask if you can borrow a friend or neighbour’s dog.
  6. Support your children in sports, clubs or any other activities that may interest them. Joining a weekend club sport encourages them to make a commitment to a team and regular exercise.
  7. Find time every weekend to do something active with your children. Play frisbee or football in the park, go trampolining, or try indoor rock climbing.
  8. Fly a kite.
  9. Take a trip to the beach. Beaches offer loads of ways for kids to get active, including games, rock-pooling, swimming, and plenty of running around. Or try an activity-based holiday.
  10. Go for a walk and explore the environment where you live.
