At Cliff Park Junior School we believe that learning involves the whole of our bodies. To be good learners we need to have active bodies and minds!
Vital to a healthy mind is a healthy body, and we seek to encourage this in our children through the experiences and opportunities planned for them during school time, and after school hours.
All children participate in planned physical activity sessions during each week.
P.E. lessons include gymnastics, games skills, movement and dance. Children have the opportunity to work with teaching staff and external sports coaches who deliver tailored lessons to children, building on skills. Children work in competitive and cooperative contexts and are given the opportunity to develop control and co-ordination of body movement, while exploring expressive and artistic possibilities.
We are making the most of current additional sports funding by developing expertise and opportunities for the children in different ways. Carry on reading to find out how.
