PE and Sport
At Heathlands we know how important PE, sport and being active can be to the development of children. We encourage our pupils to discover a love of sport which we hope, and have seen in past pupils, stays with them long after they leave us. PE leads to improved fitness, health and well-being, focus, drive, concentration, attitude and academic achievement. Providing a broad and balanced curriculum throughout the school is key to the high quality provision we offer. Children are encouraged to always strive to achieve their best, whether this is running a personal best time or competing at a county event. Healthy competition is key to pupils wanting to improve; competition against themselves and competition against others. Throughout the year children take part in inter-school house competitions as well as having the opportunity to represent the school in a wide range of sports.
Please have a look at out different sports pages to read about upcoming sports fixtures, reports of sporting events and ways to play sport in local clubs and teams.
Mr Minter is our P.E Department Leader and would be happy to answer any of your sport related questions via: firstname.lastname@example.org

On the day your child has PE they should come to school wearing their house colour t-shirt, house colour sweatshirt, black shorts or sports trousers and trainers. A base layer can also be worn if needed. If children are not yet able to tie their own laces please make sure they are wearing trainers where this is not needed. These should also be suitable for taking part in PE lessons, so not canvas trainers or hi-tops. Please also make sure earrings are removed on days when children are taking part in PE, if children are unable to do this on their own. Shoulder length hair should be tied back every day for school, including when children are taking part in PE lessons.
