Sports

Our sports curriculum provides pupils with the opportunity to develop and apply their skills in a range of physical activities including expressive movement, gymnastics and games.  Pupils collaborate together in team activities which also helps them to develop self-confidence and an awareness of each other.  Abiding by the rules of the game enables them to compete with one another fairly. Our teachers team teach alongside a qualified sports coach to deliver well focused PE sessions.  Each class is timetabled for PE on a weekly basis.  Pupils can further enhance their skills by taking on extra-curricular sports through our Enrichment Academy.  We encourage all our pupils to take up sports in order to increase motivation, self-confidence, stamina, fitness, spatial awareness and creative thinking. The Olive School also has an annual sports day and pupils take part in inter-schools sport competitions.
