Physical Education At Clapgate

The aim of our PE curriculum at Clapgate is to offer a wide range of opportunities in which children will expand their skills and confidence across the many elements involved in the subject. It is our wish for all children to develop a passion for physical activity and to adopt a healthy lifestyle- one in which they can discover their talents and gain a life-long love of sport. We have a strong focus upon the social skills as well as the physical skills involved in PE with pupils working together, having determination and showing respect in-line with our Key Values.

Additional Information

Children will access two hours of Physical Education per week. This will either be with their class teacher, Miss Beaumont (our specialist PE teacher) or Specialist coaches.

Year 4 and 5 will also attend swimming lessons at Rothwell Leisure Centre as part of their PE curriculum. 

Children are asked to attend school in their PE kit on the days they have PE. This should ideally consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms and trainers. When outdoors in colder weather, children may wish to wear a black zip-up jacket or hoody. 

There are a range of extra curricular clubs available for all children.
