Activities at Totnes Progressive School
Totnes Progressive School is committed to developing participation for all in Physical Education and goes beyond the target of 2 hours of physical activity each week. Students receive a minimum of 45 minutes of exercise a day. Our aim is to give every child the opportunity to be active and informed about the importance of living a healthy life.
As well as activity sessions, students at Totnes Progressive School have been enjoying a range of outdoor activities lead by Dynamic Adventures. We have been enjoying some incredible activities, including canoeing & kayaking on the River Dart,150 metre zip lining, rock climbing, boxing, high ropes, circus skills, archery, and and whole host of outdoor adventures that are yet to come. All students have a half day each week to get outdoors and engage in these activities that challenge and develop our students, as well as being a whole load of fun!
We enjoy a varied Physical Education and Outdoor Education curriculum. Incorporated within the wider PE curriculum are opportunities for pupils to develop creativity, flexibility, strength, balance, control, and cooperation skills through challenges in teams and as individuals.
