My name is Mr Sweeney and I am the PE teacher at Churchfields Primary School.

Children from Year 1 through to Year 6 have two lessons every week, exploring a range of different skills and activities.

                      

There are lots of opportunities to participate in after school sports clubs which take place every day.

Reminders

Please make a note of when your child has PE and ensure that their kit is in school for these lessons.

Children require trainers, navy shorts, a coloured t-shirt (depending on which house they are in) and a tracksuit for the colder months, as most lessons will be outside.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at pe@churchfields.bromley.sch.uk if you have any concerns or queries.

Thank you for your support.
