Our vision at Kings Mill School is to enable all of our children to have access to high quality and enjoyable physical activity. We believe that children, no matter what their physical or learning barriers may be, benefit from regular exercise and physical activity.
We believe that physical activity plays a vital role in developing children’s empathy, independence, communication, resilience, cooperation and teamwork skills. We also recognise the importance that physical activity plays in maintaining a healthy body and mind, and as such, we aim to ensure that every pupil receives at least 20 minutes of exercise each day in addition to weekly P.E. sessions.
We know that no two children are the same. To cater for a variety of needs and interests we facilitate a wide range of physical activities. These include: horse riding lessons, rebound therapy sessions, hydro-pool swimming sessions, regular swimming at the leisure centre, dance sessions, regular forest school trips, soft play sessions as well as a variety of activities and sporting activities that make up our broad and balanced P.E. curriculum.
We believe that competition is important, whether it be against each other (intra), against other schools (inter) or against ourselves. To facilitate this, we participate in a diverse sporting calendar that provides our pupils with multiple opportunities to compete in a variety of sporting events in our local area and further afield.
Physical Activity is a vital part of a healthy and happy lifestyle. At Kings Mill School, we aim to ensure that every pupil starts a journey that leads them towards a physically active adult life.
