Children can swim all year round at Brackenfield School, with the use of an excellent indoor pool close to the school grounds.
We are fortunate to have our own sports field adjacent to Brackenfield, which is surrounded by fields and the wooded areas of Birk Crag.
Physical education is more than just running around a track or kicking a ball. It teaches children key life skills alongside improving their health and wellbeing.
The benefits of physical education are far-reaching, including both increased student physical health and better academic performance
Our Games department ensure that the curriculum consists of age-appropriate activities that support growing minds and bodies. They adapt lessons to make them appropriate for their groups and ensure that they do not overwhelm children with skills or requirements that may be too advanced. At the same time, they know when children are ready to be stretched.
