Pupils at Ysgol y Grango will be participating in modified PE lessons
when they return to school.
We believe it is important that pupils get the opportunity to exercise
and be active especially following the pandemic where this aspect
of life was hindered to some extent.
The weekly recommendation by the NHS is at least 120 minutes a
week and we play a vital role in trying to begin to work towards this.
It is evident that being active has a significant impact on our health
and well-being which is an important focus for our pupils at Ysgol y
Grango in the return to school. The World Health Organisation
says regular physical activity can help give our days a routine.
It’s also good for our mental health - reducing the risk of depression
and cognitive decline, and improving overall feelings.
Grango PE lessons will have a focus on fitness and health for the first
term where all lessons will take place outdoors (weather permitting)
and limited equipment used. Pupils will be changing into PE kit to
ensure personal hygiene and safety is still adhered to. Therefore
pupils must attend school in their uniform. Changing rooms will
be regularly cleaned throughout the day and pupils will have access
to sanitiser before entering and leaving the changing rooms.
