"he has loved his time at Eden park and we're so grateful for how you have integrated him into school life. you have worked so hard to channel his energies into a love of learning." (School report return, 2019)
At Eden Park we provide a broad and exciting range of activities in Physical Education to appeal to all children. Children follow a whole school approach, learning sports together at an age appropriate level. These sports themes often result in tournaments and festivals which parents can support, ensuring our children benefit from competitive sport.
In the Foundation Stage, physical development is one of the prime areas of learning. We provide regular opportunities to develop children’s physical development through various adult led and child-initiated activities. Activities are provided both inside and outside of the classroom.
In Key Stage 1 we enhance PE session with activities that encourage co-ordination, teamwork and independence. By Key Stage 2 we still offer the opportunity for every child to participate in a wide range of sports but at a more complex level.
We are part of the Brixham Sports Partnership allowing us to compete regularly with other local schools as well as benefit from the expertise of our local secondary school and we also work with Torquay United.
To help make sport as competitive as possible, classes are divided into one of four "sports houses" each heading up by a local sports star. The houses compete across the year. The houses are currently:
David Hill (a Paralympian swimmer and triathlete from Exeter)
Giselle Ansley MBE (a Hockey gold medallist from Kingsbridge)
Amara Carr (a cricketer for Middlesex from Plymouth)
Dan Gosling (a premiership professional footballer who attended Eden Park)
Children in Key Stage Two also attend a residential visit overnight and take part in a wide range of additional opportunities and activities.
