Sports

Our vision at Longfield is for every child to experience a variety of sports and physical activities that inspire and motivate so that physical activity is enjoyed and embedded in their healthy lifestyle.

P.E Sports Clubs and Fixtures :

At Longfield we adopt an inclusive approach to P.E, Sports Clubs and Fixtures. We believe it is important for all children to get the opportunity not only take part in P.E and Sports Clubs, but also to represent their school in Fixtures and Tournaments against other schools. Naturally there will be different levels of ability however we value opportunity, respect, fair play and inclusion more than short term winning.

In December 2016 we began a pilot scheme aimed at rotating Year 5 and Year 6 children to take part in fixtures and festivals against local schools. We have seen a dramatic increase in children wanting to be part of teams and games, an increase in children joining after school and lunch time sports clubs, and most importantly children being inspired by sport.

Most fixtures will be aimed at Year 5 & 6 however there will be opportunities for other year groups throughout the course of the year.

From September 2017 we would like all year 6's to have represented Longfield before they leave to go on to secondary school, hopefully keeping them involved in sport and healthy living.
