At Meadows Primary School we aim to provide a balanced programme of activities that will contribute to each child’s physical
and emotional development. We aim for children to enjoy physical education and the pursuit of sporting activities which will equip
them for a healthy and active lifestyle.
Within the curriculum children take part in two hours P.E. each week covering the areas of dance, games and gymnastics. All classes
within Key Stage 2 also take part in swimming lessons at HLC Secondary School. In 2019/2020, our school was awarded ‘Gold’ by
the Sainsbury’s Sports School Games Mark. This is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their
commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. We were thrilled that our efforts, and those
of the children, were recognised for the 4th year running!
We also provide children with opportunities with external coaches to enhance their skills and provide links with the local community
such as The Telford Tennis Centre and Crossbar Coaching.
All children within Year 6 have the opportunity to attend Arthog Outdoor Education Centre on the school residential.

As part of the schools games mark we also provide a number of ‘extra-curricular’ sport sessions and give the children the opportunity
to attend a range of competitions against other Telford and Wrekin schools. We are part of the Telford and Wrekin School Sport
Partnership and as such we adhere to their Competition Guidance and Safeguarding Policy. Please click here to view a copy of the policy.
