Physical Education and sports is important at Chestnuts. We want our children to grow up fit and healthy with a good sense of keeping themselves fit. We employ a sports co-ordinator to leads and organises all our PE and sporting events throughout the year. We have a number of sports teams including boys and girls football. Our teams (Chestnuts Tigers) play competitive sports against other local schools. We work closely with our local secondary school to ensure our children get opportunities to use their sports facilities.
In July 2017, the goverment pledged to double the school sports premium for the academic year 2017/18. This means that we will receive around £19,000 to enhance our provision of sports and the promotion of healthy living.
