PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORT

The school aims to enable all pupils to participate in sport at their own level, including appropriate forms of competition.

Physical  Education and  Sport at RIMS aim to enhance the overall education of its pupils by encouraging confidence in their own physical ability and promoting an understanding of the values and benefits of exercise and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle.  It seeks to build self-esteem through the development of physical competence and the experience of achievement and satisfaction in physical activity.

It further aims to develop appropriate attitudes towards success and failure and promote  inter- personal skills and a sense of community, in particular co-operation, team spirit and sportsmanship.

Physical  Education,  including  Swimming,  is a compulsory element of the National  Curriculum and, therefore, all pupils are required to participate.  All pupils are expected to bring PE and swimming kit, according to the PE timetable.

The school has a purpose-built Sports Hall.  Within the grounds, there is a large sports field, a traversing wall and a permanent orienteering course.
