At Moat Hall we have a qualified sports coach who leads all P.E. and games sessions throughout the school. We participate in a variety of competitions and have teams for athletics, cross country, girls and boys football, cricket, handball, netball, tag rugby, hockey, dodgeball as well as inclusion and multi-sports festivals. We also compete in inter-school sports in handball, dodgeball, football and basketball.
We are committed to supporting our children to be active and healthy and encourage them to be aware of their own health. We participate in the Daily Mile initiative each day, encouraging our children to run or jog for 15 minutes to promote their social, emotional and mental well-being as well as their fitness. It takes place outside in the fresh air at a time of the teachers choosing. It is a social, non-competitive time as well as fun and helps to improve fitness and achieve a healthy weight.
We also offer Just Dance which is an extra workout opportunity during break where children follow online dance routines to music and this helps to burn those calories while listening to music!
We are proud to announce that we have recently achieved Gold standard of the School Games which rewards schools for their commitment to and development of competition, school sport, physical education and physical activity. We are currently working towards the Platinum award.
