At Roskear School, we believe that Physical Education contributes significantly to children’s learning and development across physical, social, emotional and cognitive areas.

We deliver a wide range of physical activities at Roskear with the aim of engaging and inspiring all of our children. We are committed to ensuring that all children receive at least two hours of well-planned, high quality Physical Education every week. 

During the year every pupil receives a wide range of lessons encompassing Games, Athletics, Gymnastics, Outdoor Education and Dance lessons. Swimming lessons are also incorporated into the curriculum for classes in Years R, 1 and 2.

We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe, engaging and supportive environment, is a significant factor in developing our children’s physical competence and confidence.

At Roskear, we promote physical skilfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. We aim to give a stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experience. Children may work individually, in pairs or take part in group activities. During co-operative, creative and competitive situations they are always encouraged to use their improvisation and problem-solving skills.

As a school we strive to bring competitive sports to your child entering competitions, including football, netball, swimming, grass-track cycling, cricket, tennis, tag-rugby and athletics to name a few. Roskear also provide children with opportunities through intra-school competitions. We organise a variety of school visitors throughout the year, to further support and enrich our curriculum; with the Cornish Pirates, Plymouth Argyle and even the Football Association having working relationships with the school.

Aside from competitive games, we also promote sports through a variety of after-school clubs at the school. This year we have worked hard to expand our extra-curricular sporting provision and offer a wide range of opportunities for the children from EYFS to Year 6 to participate in. This includes inclusive sports such as Boccia, Goal-ball, Tchoukball and curling.

Through a broad, balanced and creative curriculum, we hope that all of our pupils become confident individuals and successful learners, who adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Roskear are proud to say we have been awarded the Healthy Schools Award, which recognises our commitment to improving the education around making healthier choices.
We also hold the Bronze Sainsbury's School Mark for the commitment made to the development of competition across our school.
We are also working closely with the Premier League Primary Stars program; inviting the Premier League trophy and FA representatives, alongside Plymouth Argyle coaches, to our school.
