Sport plays an important part in the life of the school. Through participation in sport and PE, children not only begin to enjoy a fit and healthy lifestyle, but also learn to put into practice key values such as honesty, fair play, teamwork, respect for themselves and others, adherence to rules, to build resilience and have the ability to cope with both winning and losing.
Pupils have up to two hours of physical education each week. These sessions are planned by teachers and PE staff and taught predominantly by our PE and Sport leader.
Every term there is a PE and Sport focus which culminates in a House competition in which all children participate, for example, football, gymnastics and athletics. In addition to the 'house competitions', Sports' Day is held annually during the summer term. The children are involved in competing in various events such as running, relays, obstacle courses etc. Parents and friends are always very welcome to come and support these events.
KS2 children attend weekly swimming sessions at Uppingham School Swimming Pool and we aim for all children to be able to swim 25m and be confident in water safety by the end of year 6.
Tugby School currently holds the 'Silver Sports Mark' award and have a number of children who have qualified for the cross country finals.
