Physical Education & Sport

At the school we strive to provide children with a Physical Education curriculum that is enjoyable, exciting and inspires children to improve and achieve.

We aim to ensure children develop the skills, stamina, suppleness, agility, strength and balance to participate in a range of activities and show a commitment to PE and school sport.

PEWe encourage children to know and understand what they are trying to achieve, to make informed decisions about how to improve and to understand that PE is part of a healthy, active lifestyle. At the school we offer many extra-curricular clubs that cover a far reaching spectrum of activities extra-curricular activities are an important part of a child’s primary education. They enable pupils to develop particular skills and further their interest in one or more sporting activities. It helps to introduce a competitive element to team games and promote co-operation and a sense of good sportsmanship.

Sports at The Bay

The U11s Boys Football Team had a cup fixture away at Gurnard Primary School. The boys played well against a strong Gurnard team, but were 1.0 down early on. Ray scored a brilliant goal before half time bringing us back into the game. After the break the boys continued to battle hard but lost 2.1.

Well done, team.

The U11s Girls Football Team travelled to Carisbrooke Primary School for a league fixture. The girls produced a good performance against an evenly matched Carisbrooke team. The girls missed out on a few chances of scoring, leaving the final score 0.0.

Well done girls, for brilliant play and sportsmanship.


The U9s Girls Football Team had a league fixture away at Broadlea Primary School. The girls had a strong start but Broadlea managed to score early on.  Despite the cold conditions the girls produced a brilliant performance with a great equaliser from Isabel. After the break Lois and Isabel created some great play, with Isabel scoring another excellent goal putting us in the lead.
The final score was 2.1.

Well done girls, for a brilliant performance.


In PE last week Year 4 held a level 1 house competition for Tag rugby. The competition was managed by 4 of our young leaders from Y6 who did an excellent job of refereeing, coaching and scoring. Each house played each other once in mini Tag rugby games and combined with the results from these, points were also awarded for skill and effort and sportsmanship during warm up games. It was a great afternoon and the results were:

4th were Ireland (14 points) 3rd were England (18 points) 2nd Scotland (24 points) and Wales were the winners with 28 points.

Our U9s football team continued their excellent start to the season with a 6-1 win away to Nine Acres Primary School. It was an excellent team performance and the team remain unbeaten heading into 2018. The draw for the next round will take place in January; please keep an eye out for fixtures.

Well done everyone!

Twelve Year 6 boys and girls competed in the Island Indoor Athletics Competition at Sandown Bay Academy. The afternoon started with the boys and girls competing against eight other Island Schools in Field events which included Long Jump, Triple Jump, Standing High Jump, Speed Bounce and Javelin. The Bay made a good start coming in the top 3 places in many of the events.

After this, the Track events, which included a number of relay races, took place. Again, our children performed very well and managed to get a number of top 3 finishes. Overall, The Bay finished in 3rd place out of the 8 schools taking place, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the Island finals. Each child showed all the qualities a true sportsperson would be expected to show, and more.

Well done everyone!

The U9s girls’ football team had a league fixture against Godshill Primary. The girls produced a brilliant performance and had a well-deserved win of 4-0. Goal scorers were Isabel (who scored a hat trick) and Lois.

Well done Isabel, Lois, Lillie-Kay, Olivia, Keira-Mae, Ruby and Eva.

Over the last four weeks our year five children have been focusing on Athletics during their PE lessons. The children have been working hard on improving both their track and field events in preparation for a year five level one competition.
All house groups competed against each other in relay races and five field events. (long jump, triple jump, speed bounce, shot and ball throw) The children scored, measured and timed all of their own events during the competition.
The children have shown amazing sportsmanship and leadership skills during the competition and impressed everyone with the standard of athletic.
Well done year five!!
England : 10points
Wales : 8 points.
Scotland : 4 points.

Ireland : 4 points.

Our U11s played away to Broadlea in the league. It was a very tough match against a very strong Broadlea team. The boys were 1-0 down having missed two great chances at half time.

After the break, Broadlea scored two quick goals to put the game out of reach for The Bay. Special mention has to go to Tommy, who ran tirelessly and put in a man of the match performance.

The team continued to impress with an action packed 2-2 draw against Barton Primary. After going behind early on, Milly equalised before half time. Barton went ahead again but with seconds to go, all The Bay players (including the goalkeeper) came forward for the final corner and Milly again equalised with the last kick of the game.

The Year 5 football team produced a fantastic performance against a strong Greenmount team on Thursday. Brilliant team goals finished off by Milly and Cayleb, as well as superb defending from Tommy and Riley, earned them a 2-2 draw.

Well done, team.

Our U11 girls’ football team travelled to Brighstone for a league fixture. All of the girls played really well and we won 4-0, with goals coming from Milly (who scored a hat trick) and Summer.

Well done girls, for brilliant play and sportsmanship.

Level 1 Competition

Level 1 sporting competitions is something the children participate in our PE lessons, Sports Day, After School Clubs and Enrichment Programme. Level 1 competition is where children from the school participate in different sports against each other in teams or house groups to learn and understand healthy competition and fair play.

Cluster Competitions

Cluster competitions are a very important part of competitive school sports. It is an opportunity for children to compete and challenge themselves in Level 2 completions against children from other schools. In each cluster there are 4-8 schools all local to one another. Each school has the opportunity to host these sporting events and travel to other schools and use their facilities. Fair play and healthy competition are a priority at these events. Parents are more than welcome to come along and support their children. The successful school in each cluster competition will go on to represent the Island in the Hampshire game held at a later date.

Island Games

This is an event which takes part in the Summer Term once a year. All schools on the Island compete in their cluster against one another in a number of sports including Netball, Cricket, Athletics, Handball, Basketball and Hockey. From here, the children who perform well and excel in the selected sports are put forward to attend training days in preparation for the island games. Where they compete against the best children from the other island school clusters, resulting in one cluster team winning the Island Games. This event is held at a neutral venue. We encourage parents to come and support their children at this fantastic event.

Enrichment Activities

Enrichment is a fantastic part of our school, it is a chance for the children to engage and participate in sports and activities which they may not have experienced before. Our enrichment activities range from Rock Climbing to Athletics, Handball to Tennis and many other activities. These activities take part both in school and away from school. It is a great way for children to improve health and fitness levels whilst enjoying themselves.
