'A love of learning for life in all its fullness'




We believe that through physically demanding activities, pupils can be inspired to become confident individuals. They can learn to set themselves goals and be proud of what they have achieved.  Children can learn values such as fairness and respect for others through participating in pair, group or team activities.


We aim to provide all children with a high quality physical education. We ensure:


  • All children engage in physical activity for sustained periods of time 
  • All children are taught basic skills
  • All children have opportunities to develop their basic skills and apply them to a range of activities including dance, gymnastics, athletics, games swimming and outdoor adventure activities.
  • All children have opportunities to engage in competitive sport.
  • All children understand and can make healthy choices.


The school has close links with other schools and there are opportunities for KS2 children to participate in inter school sport activities. These include local tournaments and friendly matches for football, cricket, high five and district athletics.


The school attends swimming sessions at Appleby swimming pool, which we use in the spring term. Each class from Reception to Year 6 swims each week during that time, with children split into ability groups regardless of age.


Where possible, the school encourages all children to engage in a range of after school activity clubs provided by outside agencies.
