Physical Education

Millbrook School has come to have a strong reputation for its sports provision.

As well as 2 hours every week of curriculum time, we offer a comprehensive range of lunchtime and after school clubs. We make sure there is a wide variety of activities and competitions in our clubs, catering for all levels of ability.

We have teaching assistants and teachers running clubs and competitions, as well as specialist sports coaches, PAFC coaches for football or Lawn Tennis Association coaches running our tennis club in the Summer months. This ensures the quality of our provision is high with many pupils saying how much they enjoy them.

It doesn’t matter whether you are an elite student competing at county level, or just thinking about dipping your toe in the water for the first time. Just come along and try a session with us.

PE Kit

During the warmer months, all members of the school are expected to change for PE or outdoor activities. We ask that all pupils have the correct kit to allow them to participate in the full range of physical activities. During the Autumn and Winter months, the children are asked to have a warm jumper or fleece (not their school jumper), tracksuit trousers and spare socks. Football boots can be worn when playing football or tag rugby.

The recommended kit is:

  • Plain white or school T-shirts
  • Black shorts
  • Trainers or plimsolls
  • Long hair must be tied back
  • Jewellery must be removed.

Extra curricular Sport

Depending on the time of year, we offer a comprehensive range of school clubs for sport. In KS1 we offer specialist clubs for football as well as multiskills and balancability for our youngest bike riders. KS1 children also participate in competitive athletics tournaments against other schools.

We have many KS2 clubs, taught by teachers, teaching assistants, specialist PE coaches or by external providers such as Plymouth Argyle Football Club and the Lawn Tennis Association. During the colder months, KS2 children have the opportunity to play Tag Rugby, Football, Netball, Cross Country in a club, with all of them leading to competitions, matches or tournaments. As the weather warms, we also participate in the Junior Ten Tors challenge event for our Year 6 pupils, Bikeability training at level 1, 2 and 3, tennis club, athletics club, as well as a surf lifesaving and self rescue club at Whitsand Bay beach. All our clubs are free of charge.”
