PE and Sport at our School
What does Physical Education look like at Merdon?
At Merdon we recognise the importance of daily physical activity. Everyday the
children have the opportunity to undertake a range of active games whether it
be games led by our Play Leaders or a range of fun Inter-house competitions.
Within the classroom teachers use a range of programmes to ensure children
have the opportunity to re-energise or promote calm and mindfulness.
Each child has the opportunity to participate in 2 hours of Physical Education
lessons each week which compromise 1 hour of outside games focus and 1
hour inside with a focus on gymnastics or dance. We also provide a range of
extra-curricular sporting clubs both before and after schools where we
encourage all children to join.
Every half term we also lead Inter-House competitions to further promote
opportunities for physical activities. They also allow all children to experience
healthy competition both individually and for a team. Each child represents
their assigned school team throughout their time at Merdon.
We are extremely proud to announce that, for the second year running, Merdon was shortlisted and runner up for the 'Primary School of the Year Award' at the Eastleigh Sports Awards 2022. This recognises the hard work and commitment that Merdon has shown towards School Sport.
