At Bayford Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. As part of the Hertfordshire and Ware School Sports Partnership (H&WSSP) we have access to a range of PE & sporting experts, resources and competitions for the benefit of our children.
We currently offer extra-curricular activities such as a football club, netball club, tennis club and Change for Life club. Our children have swimming lessons in Year 3 and Year 4 and catch up lessons are given to those children still unable to swim 25m after this time.

ICT and PE
At Bayford we believe that ICT is an important assessment tool for PE. Children regularly use iPads to photograph or record each others performances. This allows them to see what they are doing well and assess their performance to see where they can make improvements.

- Once again this year the children have taken part in our Sainsbury's School Games Day. They were able to have a go at tennis, archery, trampolining, climbing street dance and karate as well as taking part in a skipping challenge to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
- This year Class 1 entered the Hertford & Ware School Sports Partnership (H&WSSP) virtual multi-skills competition. The children took part in a number of activities such as jumping and throwing. They gained points for the different activities and the total points were sent to H&WSSP to collate from different schools. Year 1 did very well, but Year 2 had a great result and came first across the partnership - well done to the Year 2 children!
- Once again we have been awarded a bronze Sainsbury's School Games Mark, a government led award scheme for our commitment to competition across the school and in our community. Well done to all the children at Bayford who have taken part in competiton of any kind.
- Last year ex-professional footballer Mark Bright visited the school for a morning. He talked in assembly about what it is like to be a profesional footballer, and the need for children to work hard at school. He also told the children about his current job as a sports presenter at the BBC. For the rest of the morning he spent some time on the field with the children in each class playing some games. The children really enjoyed the morning and we'd like to say a huge thank you to Mark for coming in.
