To be physically and mentally confident in order to support teamwork, health and fitness.


At Long Bennington Church of England Academy, we are committed to encouraging our pupils to lead healthy and active lives.  This is achieved through an extensive program of activities, available both within and outside of our curriculum and within the wider community which enable our children to:


  • foster a love of sport and physical activity,
  • pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time,
  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities,
  • learn about the importance of fair play, cooperation and team-work whilst engaging in sports and activities,
  • lead healthy active lives,
  • recognise the positive benefits of physical education on our mental health & well-being.



Curriculum PE

All of our children have access to two PE lessons per week.  Our curriculum is planned using the GetSet4PE scheme and resources.  This provides our teachers with a clear framework for planning and delivering high quality PE lessons. 


Extra-Curricular Activities

We are proud of the range of extra-curricular activities that we provide at Long Bennington, for children across the school.  These occur both during the school day and after school, we always see lots of children enjoying our clubs which highlights the value of these.



We enter a wide range of sports competitions ranging from festivals for KS1 & Year 3/4 through to competitive sport for our older children.  The majority of these are in the Grantham area but we do go to Newark for our hockey matches. 


We also have a range of inter-school competitions throughout the year, which provide children with the opportunity to represent their house in a competitive environment.





We have a fantastic relationship with the local charity Inspire+.  Through this we work hard to promote, Healthy Happy Lifestyles.  Inspire+ provide us with many things including: sports ambassadors, specialist coaches and events to attend. 




School Environment

We passionately believe that all children should have regular opportunities to play and be active throughout the school day.  We have recently invested in our school playground which has been key to helping us provide children with these opportunities.
