Sport and PE

Our children love physical education at Balksbury Federation so we take it very seriously and recognise that a healthy body is a happy body. We foster positive attitudes to health and understand that exercise leads to strong physical development; we also recognise that physical education aids self-confidence and social skills too.  Our break times and lunchtimes are active and often you will see our children proactive in sporty healthy lifestyle activities. At the Junior School, we participate in many local tournaments and have had great success over the last few years.


We are lucky to have an outdoor pool at the federation and each year teach our children from Year 2 to Year 6 life long skills. These lessons not only provide the fundamentals of learning to swim, but also provide key knowledge about water safety; all our staff who teach are life guard trained.
