We believe Physical Education is an important part of our broad and balanced curriculum. It not only contributes to a child’s physical development but also their social and psychological development, improving self-esteem and self-confidence, promoting positive attitudes towards health, hygiene and an active lifestyle and teaching perseverance, team work and how to win and equally importantly, how to lose.
We aim to provide fun, engaging, challenging lessons in which all pupils can develop their skills and achieve success irrespective of their previous sporting experience or physical ability.
A range of after school sports clubs and activities will provide children with the opportunity to develop these skills further, broaden their physical activity experiences and take part in competitive matches and events.

We are very proud of them and hope they keep up the sport when they move to
high school in September.
Year 5 Netball Festival
Wednesday 13th March
West Park hosted the festival which saw our Year 5 netball team finish in
4th position. The children played excellent netball and were victorious over
The Vale and drew their game with West Park. All seven children were a
credit to the school and we cannot wait to see what more they have in store
Our fabulous Year 1&2 multi skills team who took part in this years KS1 multi skills festival last Wednesday. Not only were they very smart and well behaved they had great fun and did brilliantly at all the different activities which included hockey, tri-golf and New Age Kurling!
The Year 6 netball team began their league campaign on Tuesday afternoon at Worthing College. A total of thirteen schools are taking part in the league and Durrington certainly have some tough competition in their pool. However, the team played with great spirit and determination.
Our first opponents were The Orchards. Their team was slick with their passing, but Durrington were able to intercept at times, disrupting their flow of play. It was a great performance from Durrington but the result did not go our way. Our second opponents were The Vale. Durrington had some great chances to score, but were unable to capitalise on them which led to another result not going our way. However, with each half the children played, confidence grew and we are now much stronger to play our next two matches in a fortnight's time.
Well done Year 6.
