Calow Church of England (VC) Primary School

'Show your SHINE everywhere' “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Your child needs a PE kit in school each day in case there are other sporting activities happening in school. 

PE kit is: A navy blue t-shirt, black shorts or joggers and suitable trainers to participate in all sporting activities. 



At Calow CofE Primary School PE is taught in the context of the school curriculum intent:  

For our children to develop physical literacy and apply fundamental movement skills within every lesson, we want children to maximise active opportunities throughout PE lessons.  

Children are at the forefront of each lesson so they can have a direct impact on their learning throughout the year.  

We would like staff to have a clear understanding of the Real PE philosophy and utilise resources through support from PE coordinators and CPD with our school partnership (SHAPE).  

Another of our aims is for learning to be enhanced through an extensive after-school club timetable allowing children to experience a wide variety of sporting opportunities.  

During the school day we plan for children to be active at regular intervals and we want staff to understand and appreciate the importance of the positive effects of active learning on the brain.  

We aspire to increase the number of children who are active and engaged at lunchtimes, leading to a healthy lifestyle which is achieved by eating sensibly, being aware of the dangers of drugs, smoking and alcohol and exercising regularly.  

Further to this, we would like children to take the initiative by becoming excellent young leaders, organising, officiating and evaluating what needs to be done to improve, motivate and instilling excellent sporting attitudes in others. We hope these positive attributes will leave a lasting legacy both in and out of school. 

At Calow CofE Primary School our PE curriculum is designed to engage all learners within PE and is done through the Real PE format.
