Physical Education


The mission of Mayville Primary school is to educate minds, develop healthy bodies, and promote positive, life long attitudes towards physical activity, fitness, and sports skills. We provide a quality and comprehensive physical education program delivered by highly professional and skilled coaches. Our Physical Education Program provides every student with the knowledge and skills necessary to make lifestyle choices that directly impact their health and well-being. ‚ÄčOur hard work was recognised by being awarded the Bronze School Mark.


We provide children with a wide range of opportunities, not just to participate and learn new skills within intra-school competitions, but also in inter-school competitions. These competitions allow the children to compete and test themselves against other primary schools in a wide range of physical activities for KS1 and KS2 children. You can see pictures and reports of our achievements!

As part of our mission to develop positive life long attitudes, we provide a wide range of after school activity provision for all ages. Children can participate in activities including: Football, Tag Rugby, Multi-Sports, Karate, Dance and Gymnastics. Our dedicated Enrichment Officer ensures that all clubs are monitored and pupil feedback is taken by all children to ensure that all clubs are effective and achieve their aims. Participation for all clubs is closely monitored, and specific needs are targeted so that all children have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of physical activities.
