William Tyndale School is committed to ensuring that children stay healthy and are engaged in a range of different sporting activities within the curriculum and through before and after school clubs.

Children from Nursery to Year 6 learn skills from coordination and moving around safely to competitive team sports. The skills children acquire are categorised into: Movement (dance and gymnastics); Skills (balls, bats and running); Athletics; Striking and Fielding games (cricket and rounders); Invasion Games (football, netball, basketball, tag rugby, handball and hockey); Net and wall Games (tennis and volleyball).  Year 4 also have swimming lessons each week at Highbury Pool.

Children at William Tyndale benefit from expert coaching with funding from the Sport Premium. This is used both during curriculum teaching as well as for sports clubs outside school hours. Children have also been introduced to a variety of team sporting activities during lunchtime play delivered by coaches from Elms, a sports organisation working in partnership with schools.

We are very lucky to have our sports pitch which is used daily. It is also opened up to the local community when not being used by the school. We have recently begun to open up the pitch for inter school competitions including Year 2 mini Olympics, netball matches and football tournaments.
