"The quality of teaching and learning in physical education is good. Pupils enjoy participating in sport very much"


    Sport, fitness and academic success all go hand in hand, so at Bedwell we take our PE really seriously. Every class has at least 2 hours of timetabled PE every week, taught by a mixture of class teachers and specialist staff from Rising Stars. We aim to introduce our children to as many sports and actitives as possible, so that they can find the one that suits them, and so that everyone can experience success - and consequently our provision includes everything from fencing to trampolining and street dance to swimming.

    As a result of all this, we have built-up a fantastic reputation for sport within the town and, indeed, at County level. In the last three years we have won the Stevenage Netball, Cricket, Basketball, Hockey, Rugby, Indoor Athletics, Lacrosse and Hi-5 Netball tournaments, and in 2016 we reprsented Stevenage at County Finals in Girls Cricket, Athletics, Speed Stacking and Tennis.

    Overall, the school is very well equipped for PE, with 2 large halls, extensive fields, outdoor basketball and netball courts and a huge supply of equipment. We ask all children to buy their own School PE kit, which consists of a t-shirt in their House colour and a pair of green shorts - all available from the School Office.
