Sport, After School and Lunch Time Clubs

At West Jesmond, we recognise the crucial role played by physical education in the emotional, cognitive, physical and social development of children. Alongside two high quality PE lessons a week, school provides a wide range of extra curricular sporting activities. Teachers work alongside the PE co-ordinator to ensure that new opportunities are created to enhance the breadth of available activities. This provision offers children the chance to further develop their skills. to try new activities and to be physically active. Details of the activities are shared with parents via the Sports notice board and weekly newsletter and week ahead. School also takes part in a number of competitive leagues and fixtures against other schools. These given children the chance to compete against others and to put their learning into practice in the context of competition.
