Sport at Parkside
At Parkside Community Primary School, we promote and provide a range of opportunities for the children to lead active and healthy lives including intra (competitions and events against others in school) and inter competitions (competitions against other schools).
We hold regular clubs after school for the children to further their skills and develop self-esteem, resilience and teamwork.
Our aim is for children to be enthused by being active and want to take part in sport and physical activity both in school and out of school.
The purpose of teaching Physical Education is to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. Children who experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills will find it enhances life-long fitness, life choices and career opportunities. PE and sport challenges and promotes self-esteem through the development of physical confidence, resilience, perseverance and a positive mindset. It teaches children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities.
