PE is something we are deeply passionate about at Lympne. We are the current award winner's of Shepway Sports Trust's PE Primary School of the Year.
Over the past few years we have provided pupils with a wide range of sporting experiences in line with our philosophy and vision statement to open children’s eyes and hearts to the possibilities before them.
We firmly believe that there is a sport for every child and that every child can succeed.
We recognise that sports like football and cricket are readily accessible for our children and that while many children like these sports not all children do.
For this reason we choose a wide range of sports and opportunities for our pupils: pickleball, lacrosse, scooting, gymnastics, dance, tennis, paddleboarding, kayaking, boxing and skateboarding to mention just a few. We hope by doing so we can capture their interest and inspire them to gain a lifelong love of sport.
The school has gone from strength to strength in its PE provision and won Shepway Sports Trust's Primary School of the Year for our PE developments in 2019. Alongside this, the school currently holds a Gold Sports Games Mark for its endeavours to ensure that all children have the opportunity to experience a range of sports in a host of competitive environments.
The school vision for PE is that we want our pupils to gain a lifelong love of sport and an awareness of the importance of its role in providing a healthy lifestyle.
We run a range of clubs, hold an array of experiences and take part in a plethora of competitions.
Our Key aims for 2021-22.
