​Sports and Clubs


We value the importance of physical education and sports at Reckleford School & Nursery. 

From the start we encourage physical development and coordination and a real enjoyment of physical activity.

The Nursery and school have well-equipped play spaces including a  new multi-use games area (MUGA) at the front of the school which was financed and installed by Sport England.

Sport, physical development and well-being is an extremely important  element of every child’s experience at Reckleford.  We aim to inspire  a love of physical play and learning through:
  • 2 hours of PE every week
  • Teachers trained in Inspired PE
  • Premier sports coaches sharing our ethos of all children being able to find enjoyment and their own talents in sports and games
  • Specialist gymnastic coaching from our local club, Orchard Gymnastics
  • Fun, daily lunchtime sessions with a range of equipment led by an experienced play worker
  • Additional sessions for those showing potential ability
  • Sports clubs for all who wish to explore and extend
  • Movement Support for those who have developmental coordination difficulties, including dyspraxia
  • Encouragement to all to explore sports and games outside school
  • Experiencing  the great resources in our local community including Ninesprings park, Orchard Gymnastics Club and Ready to Climb


Children in Year 1 and 2 are able to attend clubs after school. We currently run the following clubs during the year:
