CPS PE and Sport
Our vision for PE at CPS is that there is:
- High quality teaching and learning across the school in all sports and physical activities.
- Children that have a good understanding of health and fitness and strive to improve this.
- Larger numbers of children take part in extra-curricular sports clubs and in representing the school at festivals, matches and performances.
- Children that have experiences of a wider range of physical activities.
PE and Sport is an essential part of everyday life at CPS. We build upon the statutory two hours PE time, by providing opportunities inside and outside school to extend the time children are physically active. We are proud to be a Healthy School.
We are fortunate enough to have extensive playgrounds, a large hall, use of Callington Cricket Club pitch next door and St Germans playing field to keep all children physically active. Additionally we have our own Forest Schools Area where we teach our SMSC curriculum through outdoor education. Classes visit this on a half termly basis. There is a wide variety of equipment for different sports, that can be used during lessons, playtime/lunchtime and at after school.
As a school we are making full use of the Sport Premium money that the government has provided us, to better the physical learning experiences of all children. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people. Please see our school website to see details of how we will be spending our money and the impact of our expenditure.
