Physical Development and Wellbeing

Physical Development at Guardian Angels' plays a vital part of everyday school life. All pupils have up to two hours of PD timetabled each week to cover the six main areas of the National Curriculum which are dance, gymnastics, games, swimming, athletics, and outdoor and adventurous activities.  Swimming is offered for children in KS2.  A healthy lifestyle is also promoted. 


We are further committed to recognising the importance of physical activity of children outside the curriculum.  We believe that the links with sporting bodies, clubs etc., and the provision of extracurricular activities organised by the school is a positive experience and that the recognition and celebration of children’s achievements outside school promote an awareness of the physical activity for all children.


There is a healthy tradition in our school for after school activities supervised by teachers and sports coaches in their own time.  These activities provide opportunities for more advanced coaching and competition with children from other schools. Our school is a member of the Bury Junior Schools Sports Association (BJSSA) and participate in many of their competitions. We also encourage links with many sporting bodies and clubs where children’s enthusiasm is channelled into positive experiences outside of school. 


We have strong links with local High Schools, regularly taking part in their competitions, both in and out of school hours. We believe this is a valuable part of our school activities and a useful supplement to the Government guidelines.


We celebrate 'National Sports Week' annually with a multitude of activities which include a whole school sponsored fundraising such as 'Zumbathon' or 'Pound The Floor', lunch time triathlon, roller skating, a fitness journal and world champion boxer 'Scott Quigg' joined us for a Q&A session.


Outdoor Gym!

We have received a grant as part of the 'Healthy Pupils Bid' and are planning to create an outdoor gym for the children! Hopefully, the children (and teachers!!) will get lots of use out of this and it will be great fun!


Gymnastics Safety

Our gymnastics safety session on the field was a great success and we will continue to teach the children how to handstand and cartwheel safely on the field annually, to ensure we can enjoy playtimes and lunchtimes to the fullest - with minimal injuries hopefully!
