PE and Sports
At Loughton School we are very passionate about physical education and promoting a healthy lifestyle. Read about our latest sporting news here.
Every child receives at least 2 hours of dedicated PE and sports time which ranges from cross country, football, tag rugby, basketball, korfball, athletics, gymnastics, dance, rounders and more. They are taught in their mixed ability class groups.
As a school we take part in a number of fixtures and festivals and have a number of sports teams for children to get involved with including football, x-country, tag rugby, korfball, dodge ball, netball, basketball, athletics, rounders, cricket, badminton and gymnastics. We are very proud that children of all sporting abilities get the chance to represent our school in these fixtures. In 2018-19, nearly half of our children (46%) represented the school in a sporting fixture.
Our facilities include a sports hall for gymnastics and dance, one large playground for sports such as basketball and hockey, a smaller playground for korfball and an extensive field for pitch games such as football or rugby. We also have a mile track on each playground for the children to run or walk round frequently to keep fit.
Many of our extra-curricular club opportunities have a sporting focus ranging last year in 2018-19 from skipping and rope fitness to kwik cricket. We are delighted that over half of our children (56%) joined a sporting club last year.
We work on teaching children through fun and enjoyment but also involving key aspects such as being independent, being respectful at all times, being inspiring to others, showing creativity and being resilient.
