A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At Cullingworth Village Primary School, the PE Curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We are giving children opportunities to participate with outside providers such as rugby coaches to supplement their usual PE lessons; participate in sport events and compete with children from other schools as well as providing them with a choice of after-school activities which will build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. We have made a link with our local Secondary School which is hoped will continue to develop children’s sporting and teamwork skills.
The National Curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy and active lives.
Children from years 3-6 are taking part in the Keighley & Craven Schools Cross Country League.
