Shelley Sports Pyramid

At Kirkburton CE First School, we believe in giving all children an equal opportunity to represent our school in competitions. This is regardless of their gender, age or ability, and we try our best to involve as many children as possible across their time with us at Kirkburton. All we ask is that the children try their hardest and represent the gold values of our school at events. We are incredibly proud of our children, whether they come first or last in an event.

This ethos is fully endorsed and promoted by Shelley Sports Pyramid and is the ethos all schools in the pyramid should be promoting. For some children, taking part in sporting events through school is the only opportunity they will get to take part in these kind of events and gain those valuable life-experiences.

P.E. Lessons at KFS

PE is a key part of the National Curriculum, and a great way for us to stay healthy, happy and active.

Every child at Kirkburton First School receives two hours of PE every week, in addition to a weekly forest school session.

Our youngest children in school, those in Class Reception, benefit from daily physical activity in the outdoor area. Here they have the opportunity to develop their gross and fine motor skills, alongside team building, co-operation and social development.

If you have any questions about PE at Kirkburton First School, feel free to speak to your child's class teacher, or contact Miss Branigan.

P.E. Kit

Please ensure that your child has the required PE kit and appropriate footwear in school at all times. Click here for details of our P.E. kit policy.

Sports Funding

Since September 2013 additional funding has been provided by central government for the improvement of standards in physical education and to provide children with more opportunities to participate in physical activities, in particular competitive sports. 

The purpose of the funding is for schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they offer.

This is measured against five key indicators set out by the Department for Education:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.
