P.E. at Chacewater School

PE at Chacewater School

PE and Sport is an essential part of everyday life at our School. We build upon the statutory two hours PE time, by providing opportunities inside and outside school to extend the time children are physically active e.g. Wake and shake and run a mile.

We are fortunate enough to have extensive outdoor space, a hall and a the recreation field to keep all children physically active. There is also a wide variety of equipment for different sports, that can be used during lessons, playtime/lunchtime and after school.

We work in conjunction with professional and local clubs to supplement the expertise that our staff have. This includes Lauren Syrett - professional dance coach, Len Hatchet -swimming instructor, the Cornish Pirates and Chacewater Bowls club.
