Rugby Is Good For You

rugbyAt Loxford, we strongly believe that Physical Education and Sport provides students with an excellent opportunity to refine skills such as team work, leadership, communication, decision making and developing the mental determination to succeed. These attributes will help your child not only in their academic school life, but in their adult lives also. Sport and Physical Education is an important component of a healthy active lifestyle which we are keen to promote both in school and into adulthood.

As part of Loxfords participation of the Rugby Football Union All Schools programme, rugby has been re-introduced to the KS3 PE curriculum and as an extra-curricular club. It has proven to be very popular and successful . The school has developed strong links with Barking Rugby Club for those students wishing to pursue rugby further.

Recently, there has been reports in the media about the possible risks of participating in rugby. During any rugby session or fixture safety is the primary concern of the coaches and teachers . To address any questions you may have, please find the attached links for further information about how rugby can benefit your child and how it is made safe for all learners.
