Physical Education forms a core element to life at Rocks Park with the school recently being awarded a School Games Gold Mark. In conjunction with the National Curriculum, Physical Education incorporates the teaching of gymnastics, dance, athletics, games, outdoor pursuits and swimming.

Through the two hours of timetabled PE each week, children have the opportunity to explore how their bodies move using apparatus and in response to music. How to defend and attack in games situations leads to participation in sports such as football, netball, tennis, cricket, rounders and other small team games. During Term 6 our outdoor swimming pool allows all pupils to access one hour of swimming lessons per week, taught by a fully qualified swimming teacher.

The grounds at Rocks Park make it possible for us to develop the children’s love of outdoor pursuits such as orienteering and den building, with children accessing our own woodland.

At Rocks Park we are proud of how many of our students chose to compete in school teams and in 2018 our girl’s football team reached the Sussex Final at the Amex stadium.
