PE & Sport Policy




Riverview Junior School recognises the vital contribution of physical education to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development as well as the role it can play in a child’s spiritual, moral and cultural development.


At Riverview Junior School we are committed to delivering high quality PE through an exciting range of physical activities which also provide opportunities for competition, self-improvement and learning good team work, sportsmanship and self-discipline. This year we have introduced a new scheme of work which offers a wider coverage of sports, including a few new ones.

We are delighted to be able to introduce swimming lessons on a Friday afternoon, taught by a qualified swim instructor at Cascades swimming pool. Year 6 will attend in Terms 2 and 6 and Year 5 will attend in Term 3.







These lessons are compulsory and will enable us to meet the DfE requirement that by the end of KS2 all children should be able to:


· swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

· use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]

· perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
