At River Beach, we offer children a minimum of two hours of sport per week in every class with children having access to a range of exciting equipment and extensive facilities inside and outdoors.
In addition to PE sessions, we have competitions, visits and experiences for many of our pupils to take part in. These include; cross country races, inter house competitions in different sports such as golf and gymnastics and visits from coaches and even professional athletes.
Our annual summer sports day is an exciting event where the children can work in their house teams. It really is a highlight to our sporting calendar and another chance for all of our pupils to demonstrate their sporting abilities in a competitive and fun event.
Before and after school, we provide almost 1500 spaces across the school year for our children to take part in active clubs. These range from clubs run by coaches such as golf, football, karate and zumba to teacher led clubs in dance, gymnastics and football. We even run a ‘change4life’ club which inspires children to not only be active but have a healthy diet as well. Whether you are into motorsports or racket sports our club timetable is bound to provide something you are interested in.
Within the local area, we compete against other schools as part of the Littlehampton Area Sports Partnership (LASP) and the wider Southern Area School Games partnership. We pride ourselves on our sports teams’ reputation for competitiveness, fair play and sportsmanship; which are values we hold in high regard and aim to promote at River Beach. Also our links with TLA and Angmering enable us to make use of their resources and support our children with transition to secondary school.
Don’t just take our word for how fantastic we are at sport in the previous years we have competed at the regional finals in cross country and our boys and girls football teams are current locality champions. In addition, due to our commitment to sport we have been awarded Platinum Plus in KS1 Quality Start Award and Gold in Your School Games award.
Finally, we believe children should be able to experience sport in a range of settings and in Year 4 and Year 6 our children have the opportunity to try a vast range of activities on residential trips.
