PE

Our aims are to provide the highest quality physical education for children and to give them the skills and knowledge required to live a healthy, active lifestyle. We have a specialist PE teacher, wide ranging specialist sporting equipment and facilities enabling  maximum engagement in the PE  curriculum, which provides new, exciting and innovative opportunities.

In addition to PE lessons, there are numerous enrichment opportunities, awards schemes as well as signposting to further sporting opportunities beyond our school environment. Sandbrook has exciting links and opportunities with professional sporting clubs such as the Rochdale Hornets and Rochdale AFC, to give children an inside view and opportunity within professional sport.

Competing takes place regularly, in a whole variety of competitions, both within school and against others. Using our school hall, vast playing fields and plentiful resources, children are able to experience all of the mainstream sports and many up and coming ones too! All of our sporting excellence is underpinned with promoting fair play and respect.

Our aims are to ensure that all pupils:
Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
Are physically active for sustained periods of time
Engage in competitive sports and activities
Lead healthy, active lives

 Swimming and water safety
All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. At Sandbrook we provide swimming to all children in Y4.
In particular, pupils should be taught to:
swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
use a range of strokes effectively , for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke.
perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
