Physical Education (PE)
Extra – Curricular activities are offered and encouraged in a variety of sporting and physical activities to all age groups over the course of the year. At lunchtimes the Y6 Sports Crew and the Y5 Change4life ambassadors run sports activities for younger children.
We work closely with clubs and organisations locally and we actively encourage children to become involved in sporting activities outside school eg: Swimming Club and football training.
We ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of sports and activities.
Physical Education involves all the children in the continuous process of planning, performing and evaluating all areas of activity with emphasis upon performance and always trying our best.
All children are provided with the skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
Our pupils are physically active and this has positive implications on their learning in the classroom.
All children from Reception to Y6 experience a wide variety of sports in our extensive grounds. All are involved in representing their House Team in intra competitions in a wide range of sports.
Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of exercise.
Children enjoy PE and develop a love of sport, and physical activity, that they pursue outside of school and in future life outside of primary school.
All pupils understand the values and importance of fair play and being a good sportsperson.
KS2 children are involved in competitions with other local primary schools through the Hope Valley Primary Schools’ Sports Association and the Rural School Sports Association.
At the end of KS2, pupils leave school with the skills to self-rescue in the water and swim 25 metres competently.
