At Nechell’s primary school we follow the proven model of long term athletic development. Our first phase of physical literacy is introducing pupils to fundamental stages of movement, this includes enhancing a pupils balance, co-ordination, agility and speed.
As a pupil moves through the key stages they will be challenged on decision making and a basic understanding of well recognised invasion games.

Over the course of their three-day residential trip, our pupils will improve their confidence in the water as they try out activities like kayaking, paddle-boarding, dinghy sailing and keel boating.
