Our PE curriculum is cited by many children to be one of the highlights of their school life - in the Year 6 leavers film last year the children said "My favourite thing about TD School is PE!" This is due to ALL staff being thoroughly committed to ALL children becoming confident and competent movers, developing coordination, balance and agility in all the sports and physical activities they do, from the Early Years Foundation stage right through to Y6. To understand that good physical education can have a positive and fun impact on their lives now and create good habits for their lives going forward is the ultimate goal we all strive towards.  We aim to include as much physical activity through our curriculum and through the school day as possible, using the amazing outdoor space we have to deliver all manner of curriculum subjects in an active manner and engaging children in physical activity during break times. Our core PE curriculum is delivered across school by both school staff and trained specialists in some areas. This year, for example, we have welcomed Hawkes Fitness back as a regular part of our teaching team and also enjoyed basketball, football and rugby coaches coming in to enhance the curriculum further. We also regularly use a former Olympian to inspire our cycling skills, as well as having climbing walls, karate days and skipping workshops to inspire the children further and offer experiences they don't normally have. Children enjoy interschool competition within the Ryedale area, taking part in events whenever possible. Our PE  curriculum is also enhanced by our Forest Schools sessions.
