At Old Bexley we teach the children to appreciate the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Alongside our broad and balanced PE Curriculum, children have access to a variety of sports and after school clubs.
We employ Specialist PE Teachers, Coaches and Play Specialists to ensure children are achieving and gaining an understanding of the importance of team work and co-operation.
We also create links and good relationships with local Secondary schools and Community clubs providing additional opportunities to support children's growth in sport.
These cross curricular activities have a positive influence on academic achievement, self esteem and well being.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme, launched in 2012, to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Old Bexley is extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including the volunteers and officials who make our competitions possible.
