Physical Education

We are an extremely active school. We aspire to give our children a wide experience of a variety of sports.
Why not take a look at our current sporting achievements this academic year (2017/18). Check out our Sporting Diary below!
Look at all our extra curricular activities.
If you would like to join any of the activities please contact the reception.
We celebrate our sporting success every week in a special Sports Assembly.

We are continually striving to improve our PE curriculum to ensure that all children enjoy their PE experience at Culcheth Primary School. Each week the children are taught using the scheme 'Real PE'. This focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique approach to teaching and learning in PE. The foundations of the scheme are based on Fundamental Movement Skills of agility, balance and coordination, inclusive competition and broader essential holistic skills.
We achieved GOLD for our school games award!

So why did we receive GOLD?

The application looked at:

·    the range of competitive sports on offer to KS2 within and     outside school

·    participation in after school sporting activities - we actually scored 133% in this as most pupils are involved in one or more club; 38% of KS2 are in the Running Club – where participation at the weekly Junior Park Run at Orford Hub is phenomenal!

·    pupil involvement in sports planning and leadership – 28% of KS2 have been involved in leadership (through the summer academy, Active8 or PhysKids)

·    support for talented young sports people

·    inclusion – opportunities for all

·    communication

·    links to local sports clubs


Our school received the ‘afPE quality mark’ award for our sporting achievements and high quality PE in our school. Well done to all the children, staff and governors for your hardwork and dedication to PE and sport in our school.

Each year we receive  PE/Sport premium money.
The document below shows how we are spending the money for this academic year and it explains how it will make a difference.
Also below is a brief overview of key skills that children should possess in PE.
We have measured the impact that the sports premium money have had at our school by using an assessment wheel.
Red- Emerging
Orange- Developing
Green- Established
As you can see from the wheel in the academic year 2016/17 the areas we needed to focus upon were swimming, assessment and planning as well as staff development.
You can now see that as of December 2017 (academic year 2017/18) the area that we need to focus upon is pupil achievement and progress ensuring that as many pupils are as active as possible and are achieving within sport. We will also be focusing upon gaining evidence and further developing any partially met areas (orange areas) in the wheel.
We had a busy,
sporty academic year in
Our PE link Governor Mrs McCreedy- has completed 'The London to Paris bike ride'. CONGRATULATIONS
Sports Leadership Camp
Each half term a group of children take part in a Sports Leadership Course. The children learn how to teach different skills and then come back to school and deliver what they have learned in small group situations. Congratulations to all children who have passed the Sports Leadership Camp. The children managed to achieve Bronze and Silver Awards.
The children enjoyed our annual sports day on Friday 7th July. We give the children the opportunity to take part in competitive and team events. The team events consists of an obstacle race, relay race, javelin throwing, egg and spoon race, sack race and much more. The children earn points for their house. The competitive races are a sprint, long distance and hurdles. 
Take a look at the overall results and our sports day official programme below.
A special mention goes to Dominic Williams in Year 4, who stopped running to help a class friend who fell over.
Well done Dominic we are very proud of you!
