P.E. and Sports

At Clare CP School, our aim is to provide all our pupils with a wide range of safe, fun, inclusive, creative, challenging and competitive sporting opportunities to ensure maximum participation and achievement.
We aim to develop fitness, agility, balance and coordination alongside sport specific skills for Dance, Gym, Athletics, Games, OAA and Swimming.
We aim to raise the profile of PE and sport, and promote awareness of the components which lead to a healthy, active lifestyle. 
We aim to use PE as a tool to raise behavioural and academic standards through the development of social and thinking skills, including effective collaborative work, leadership and volunteering, organisation, recording, and use of literacy and numeracy skills.

  • Stour Valley dance performance Years 4, 5 and 6 will be walking up to Stour Valley school on the morning of March 15th to watch the annual Dance showcase presented by pupils. I am sure it will be as impressive and inspiring as it was last year. It is lovely to see many of our ex-pupils excelling at Stour Valley, and we look forward to increased collaboration between our two schools.

As a school we receive 'P.E. and Sport Premium Funding'.

Between September 2015 and August 2016 we received £8,671.

This money was spent on a specialist P.E. teacher. This role involves teaching P.E. across the school and working with class teachers to help raise P.E. teaching standards and promote professional development.

In addition to this our specialist P.E. teacher runs lunchtime and after school sport and well being clubs to encourage healthy living. These clubs are provided free of charge,  thanks to the funding.

'Gymnastics 100%, tennis, badminton, running and jumping in athletics and cricket, competition...Race for Life' (Y4)

'Diamond cricket because I can play with my brother now, tennis because you can choose a partner and get a rally going, dancing because you can improve your skills and work with your friends' (Y3)
