PE Sport and Physical Activity
At Priory School, PE, Sport and physical activity is at the heart of the school. We are affiliated to the Slough School Sport Network and have previously received four School Games Gold Kite Marks. We were on course to achieve platinum, before Covid-19 delays to the kite mark entries.
In 2017 we were named Berkshire’s most active primary school. During the day all students take part in the Daily Mile, as well as Active Movement. Students are kept active on the playground with structured activities, sports and use of the outdoor gym.
"Curriculum enrichment is a strong element of the school’s curriculum offer. Specialist teaching in sport contributes very well to pupils’ learning, enjoyment and engagement. Ofsted Report, March 2019"
