We are a very active school and engage all our children in regular physical activity. We offer Wake and Shake sessions every morning to start each day in a positive and energetic way. Our aim is for all children to do 60 active minutes within every school day including play times and lessons. We are fortunate to have the Bray Way track around our school grounds, three laps equating to 1km. Each year, we elect Sports Ambassadors to be role models and sporting leaders of the school. Their role includes being playground leaders and help at various events throughout the year including Sports Days and activity days.

Nafferton Primary School is part of the Driffield School cluster. Schools in the cluster have the fortunate opportunity to compete in a variety of sporting events throughout the academic year. These inter-school tournament events include the following sports: Football, Rugby, Netball, Hockey, Cricket, SportsHall, Athletics, Cross-Country, Biathlon, Swimming and Tri-Golf with several being held on our grounds.


We understand the importance of being able to swim and perform water safety, therefore we provide swimming tuition to both Year 3 and 4 children. This is with the intent for more children to achieve 25m while attending Nafferton Primary School.


Forest Schools and outdoor education is also important at Nafferton. We have invested some of our Sports Premium budget to expand our staff knowledge and training to deliver Forest School sessions to all children. At Nafferton School we value outdoor education and believe Forest Schools teaches many skills and a vital experience given to children.


Nafferton Primary staff are passionate about providing the children with a wide-range of sporting clubs at lunch time and after school. Recent additional sporting coaching includes Brad from Hull FC to deliver multi-skills, rugby and cricket. Harry Sheador Sports School will be delivering gymnastics and Yoga to Years 1 and 2. As part of promoting a two-year wider sporting opportunity at the school, we plan to offer new sporting opportunities through inviting agencies to introduce other sports at Nafferton. This will form new club links in order for children to develop their knowledge in a broader range of sporting disciplines. By introducing new sports to the school, we aim to engage with a wider participation audience.

PE plays an integral part of our school daily life at Nafferton School.
