Children at Stebonheath Primary School have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sporting activities. These include gymnastics, dance, athletics, netball, football, outdoor and adventurous activities. Our large hall is used for indoor work including large and small apparatus. The large playgrounds are used for athletics, football, rugby, cricket, hockey, netball and basketball skills. We have the use of Coedcae School’s football and Rugby pitches for competitive matches and practises. These are a two minute walk from the school.
Year 6 children are invited to attend a 5-day residential stay at the Pendine Outdoor Education Centre.
Several after-school sports clubs are provided at school for the children. These are well attended and enjoyed.
We aim to promote healthy lifestyles through physical activity and to introduce children to the enjoyment and achievement of participation, as an individual, team or class member. We teach safe practice.
The children are expected to change into appropriate clothing for PE and games. Jewellery must be removed.
These are key aspects in the preparation of children for their lives now and as adults. It is hoped that the ethos of the school, which emphasises a caring and considerate atmosphere, develops respect for the individual, values achievements of everyone and encourages attitudes which enable children to make a positive contribution to, and live harmoniously with others in the community.
At the appropriate times, opportunities are provided for responding to the needs of others by supporting charities and appeals both local and international.
In Health Education, the aim is to provide opportunities for children to increase their understanding about their bodies and how they work, hygiene, diet, how to keep fit, use/misuse of drugs. Specific areas of the curriculum e.g. topic work on Food, Ourselves, Good Health, Bullying and Relationships are offered.
