Cookham Rise Primary School

PE

 At Cookham Rise we aim to provide two hours of quality PE lessons per week from Reception to Year 6. Your child's teacher will let you know when PE lessons are timetabled and we would urge you to ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school so that they may join in. We welcome specialist PE teachers into school to help us teach specific skills and techniques and sometimes these may be at times outside your child's normal PE lessons. In order that they do not miss out, we suggest that PE kit is brought into school on Monday morning and remains in school until the end of the week.

In order to achieve this and to improve the provision of PE and sport in Primary schools an additional funding has been made available.
