"The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success" - Mrs Barrett, PE Co-ordinator.
At Horbury St Peter’s and Clifton (VC) Primary School, we intend to instil the “St Peter’s and Clifton School Spirit” in all our children. Physical Education throughout school embodies this Spirit in a positive and meaningful way.
We recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE, sport and physical activity. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We want our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as team work, fairness, respect, perseverance and self-belief as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.
We fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:
Pupils participate in weekly high quality PE and sporting activities.

P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At Horbury St Peters and Clifton, we provide opportunities for children to become physically literate in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other physical activities build character and help to embed the values of the St Peters and Clifton SPIRIT.
