Sports at Greenwood

Physical Education at Greenwood

At Greenwood we are so lucky because we have Mrs Aspinall (a specialist PE teacher) to deliver the PE curriculum across all key stages. All children should come in their PE kit on their allocated PE day. PE Kit at Greenwood consists of: 

Indoor PE Kit:

  • Navy/black shorts
  • White T-shirt/Polo
  • Plimsolls

Outdoor PE Kit:

  • Navy/black shorts or jogging bottoms
  • White T-shirt/Polo
  • Trainers
  • A navy/black jumper





(Greenwood Fleeces are available at the school office and are a fab addition to your child's PE kit. You can also order Greenwood polo tops.)


Children should NOT wear any jewellery during PE lessons and should be removed before your child comes to school (staff are not permitted to put earrings in for children).


In the Summer we often increase the amount of PE taught, it is therefore so important that children apply and wear sun cream to protect them. 


KS1 and KS2 should have the opportunity of swimming lessons during the year, your children will given a letter to confirm when their lessons should take place. Swimming now takes place at Lammas Leisure Centre on Thursday mornings.

If your child is unable to take part in PE lessons for medical reasons then a letter should be sent with them to school for Mrs Aspinall. 


Below is Greenwood's PE long term overview. This is so that you can see what PE your child is doing and when, to ensure they have the appropriate kit in school.

Sports After School Clubs

This year we are offering a sports club to 4 different year groups every term. Please ensure that the children bring their PE kit if they are attending the after school club.

This year we are using a new after school club provider called- Premier Education. 'Across the country, Premier Education runs thousands of after-school clubs every day; it’s the perfect way for children to build confidence, burn energy and learn new skills. Our after-school sessions feature a huge range of sports and games, from classic favourites to brand new experiences we are sure they will love. Each coach has received high quality training to make sure that every session is educational, and every child feels included.'

Dance is taught by 'All about Fitness', the children will all get dance lessons in school for 1 half term. This club is run by the same people that we have for those in school sessions. 

Gymnastics is taught by Kate from Ashfield Gymnastics Club and she is absolutely brilliant, the children learn new skills and build up their confidence in their basic gymnastics skills, Kate even brings in apparatus for the children to use!
