Vicarage is in Partnership with Langdon Secondary School Sports SLA. This means we get specialist sports coaches to teach our children in subjects such as dance, multi skills and cricket. We also have a specialist sports coach for children with SEND. Staffs receive training in order to enhance their subject knowledge; we also provide sports related opportunities and competitions for our pupils.
The curriculum is taught through various sports such as dance, multi skills, football, athletics, gym, basketball, rounders, tennis and hockey. Within these sports children learn a number of skills including, creativity, flexibility, strength, balance, control, competitiveness and co-operation skills. These are learnt both as individuals and as a team.
Vicarage is an inclusive school. Our SEND pupils have additional dance sessions called Rocking and Rolling.
We have large number of lunchtime and after school clubs including: football, cheerleading, multi-skills, street dance, cricket and dodge-ball. .
Our pupils take part in various borough wide competitions: This is an opportunity to showcase the unique skills they have learned and is a great way to encourage team work, fair play, healthy competition as well as improve self-esteem.
We have trained pupils from Years 5 and 6 to run activities and competitions during lunchtimes for the younger children. This gives the children a great sense of responsibility, boosts confidence and is of course a lot of fun.
