Arts, Crafts, Design and Technology
The school has a strong record in the creative arts and crafts, with its own kiln and a small craft room. The children’s work is displayed in the corridors and public areas to allow us all to enjoy them.
The children all have two hours of PE each week, which can include gymnastics, dance, athletics or outdoor and adventurous activities. The children have many opportunities to enjoy sports including netball, football, hockey, tag rugby, athletics, rounders, short tennis and basketball. The older children have swimming lessons at Bath Leisure Centre.
We have specialist sports coaches who come in to provide additional coaching in sports like football, cricket and tennis.

You can find out about how we spend our PE funding in these documents:
Religious Education This is taught from the Local Authority’s Agreed Syllabus and we learn about all the main faiths. Religious education is enhanced in our school by special events, visits and visitors and by our links with St Nicholas Church.
Modern Foreign Languages The older children have either French or German lessons, although everyone can join the lunchtime French Club. We have a strong link with The Lime Tree School in St Etienne des Oullieres, France, and many of our children have a French pen pal.
Educational Visits Often the learning about a particular topic will include a visit, such as to the Steam Museum at Swindon, Bristol Zoo, Warleigh Lodge Farm, or Westonbirt Arboretum. For the older children there are also residential visits, which they greatly enjoy. All of the classes take advantage of our canal-side setting and the outstanding countryside around Bathampton village for visits.
