Physical Education forms an essential part of the curriculum at Gonville Academy. PE educates pupils in a variety of different sports and introduces a broad awareness of specific skills.  It allows children to express themselves physically in a structured environment whilst embedding the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Under the new government guidelines children at Gonville Academy receive 2 hours of PE a week which are delivered by our sports coaches. Our coaches use fun and imaginative ideas to ensure children are fully engaged while being taught a number of skills, games and sports. PE assessments are an ongoing process throughout the year which allows the children to develop and achieve their potential. We also provide swimming lessons for our Year 5 pupils.

We offer a wide range of competitions and extra curriculum activities, before and after school, during the school year which serves as a further opportunity for children to grow into future athletes.

At Gonville academy every child participates in weekly Music lessons based upon the national curriculum objectives as well as a weekly singing assembly. We also have a school choir who meet weekly and often perform at outside venues. Children in Year 5 each year perform at Fairfield Halls as part of the annual We Sing U Sing with John Fisher.


Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) is incorporated into PSHE. Every effort is made to match the teaching and knowledge to the maturity of the children. We aim to help pupils to cope with the physical and emotional challenges of growing up, give them an elementary understanding of human reproduction and enable them to make informed choices about their health and environment, and to resist bullying.
