There are so many fantastic sporting opportunities for the children at Mudeford Junior School I don't know where to begin!
Each week the children have one outdoor games lesson and one indoor PE lesson. Due to our close proximity to the sea, we offer our children in year 3 swimming on a weekly basis during the Autumn and Spring Terms. During games sessions the children will learn a range of transferable skills in the context of rugby, football (lead by AFC Bournemouth), hockey, netball, tennis, athletics, rounders and cricket. When the children do indoor PE, they will be covering units in gymnastics and dance. (Please see curriculum overview map).
Miss Armstrong is in the process of revamping our curriculum so look out for updates coming soon as to all the new exciting units of work we will be covering from September 2020.
As well a varied PE curriculum, we encourage as many children as possible, and those with particular strengths in specific sports, to represent the school throughout their time at Mudeford Juniors. Last academic year, we attended a record number of tournaments and festivals, with a huge number of children benefiting from these inter school competitions. As a result of the Primary Sports Premium, we are have been able to join the Christchurch Schools Sports Partnership which allows us to have a huge range of activities on offer for our children this year!
I am pleased to report that Mudeford Junior School have achieved GOLD in the School Games Mark for the fourth year in a row (2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019 and 2019-2020). We are one of the few schools in Christchurch to achieve this!
