P.E

Physical Education (PE) at Rough Hay Primary plays an important part of everyday school life.  The benefits of engaging in regular physical activity and sport has a positive impact on children’s social skills, self-esteem, confidence and embeds a healthy lifestyle.  Our dedicated teaching staff have a positive attitude towards PE and deliver their own lessons in this subject.

All pupils have PE each week to cover the main areas of the PE curriculum.

Swimming is a curriculum subject. It is a life skill and everyone should have the opportunity to learn to swim.  Our swimming teachers             Miss T Dawes - Sports/PE Coordinator and Miss H Welding - Year 4 teacher are not only dedicated to ensure all of our pupils learn to swim safely but are also fully trained and qualified swimming instructors with the Swimming Teachers Association (STA).  

Our lessons take place at Palfrey Junior Primary in Walsall.  Palfrey’s pool is an excellent place to take children as it is clean, well maintained and has a child friendly atmosphere thus pupils seem to be more calm and relaxed.
