PE and Sport   Article Image

PE and Sport are an integral part of school life for pupils at Ravenstone. Children will experience a PE, dance and swimming lesson (from Year 4) every week. Our aim as a school is also to enter every sporting competition that Wandsworth offers and excel in athletics and swimming.

PE and sport in Ravenstone is designed to improve the following:

■ pupil concentration, commitment and self-esteem; leading to higher attendance and better behaviour and attainment;

■ fitness levels; active children are less likely to be obese and more likely to pursue sporting activities as adults, thereby reducing the likelihood of illness

■ success in local and international competition by ensuring talented young sports people have a clear pathway to elite sport and competition whatever their circumstances.

  • We also beleive that a rich sporting and activie lifestlye will improve happiness among our pupils

■ show a strong commitment to making PE and school sport an important and valuable part of their lives in both school and the community;
