Nathaniel Newton Infant School is proud to be a real legacy school and is striving to create a new ambition for EVERY child. 

Not only are we on a mission to get our children more active by developing the fundamental movement skills that are so often overlooked, our PE lessons are centred around the child to enable them to be successful in the classroom and in later life.

Real legacy allows us to bring the school, home and the community together to enable cultural change. Our journey commenced with real PE teacher training to support our PE provision to develop the whole child and extends across the school to include supporting families and the wider school community. The school is supported with teacher training, school based support, fun real play activities for families, enrichment and competitive opportunities and supporting resources from Create Development all through a holistic approach to also develop children's personal, social and emotional skills.

We are also part of the Northern Area Schools Sports Partnership.  This offers the children the opportunity to participate in a range of sporting activities in conjunction with other local schools.  The children all receive up to 2 hours of P.E. a week in school ranging from dance and gym, to games and athletics.  We also offer a variety of sports-based after school clubs such as football, golf, tag rugby, athletics, skipping and non-contact boxing (please see the section on Extended Services for more details of our after school clubs).
