Physical Education

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7Click here to read about our curriculum offer and download our progression maps

PE at Clifton

The National Curriculum aims for these objectives to be achieved;

·        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, active lives

We are confident at Clifton that all four aims are achieved, as we focus on the quality and breadth of our PE curriculum. Therefore, our key focuses are; Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Invasion Games, Net Games, Outdoor Adventure and Striking and Fielding.

Within Key Stage One, our aim is to focus on the fundamental skills of movement and provide opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.

Whereas within Key Stage Two, our aim is to build on these skills and further their learning within a wide variety of sports. We focus on the importance of applying skills learnt in competitive situations and the ability to evaluate and recognise their own successes. This academic year we are introducing many new sports, which provides all children with new opportunities and the chance to apply existing skills.

Progression is key.

At Clifton, we strive for all children to be the best that they can be. As a result, we have clearly identified the progression across year groups to ensure we are providing children with the opportunity to develop their skills and apply these within a variety of competitive situations.

Activities and Events

At Clifton upon Dunsmore, we strive to motivate all children, to confidently, lead healthy lifestyles. Last academic year we relaunched “Our PE Board” this celebrates and rewards children for leading active lifestyles. We felt this was extremely successful and look forward to this carrying on.

Throughout this year, we participated and competed in a variety of competitive events like Girls Football Tournaments, Cross Country Championship, Swimming Gala, ASHA fun run, Tag rugby Festival, Rugby Primary Athletics Competition and Sports Day at Clifton.

We will continue to compete in these and many more!
