Read on for the details of Sport in our curriculum, plus fantastic enrichment from our Sports Funding Grant; we have an exciting P.E Programme, with something for everyone!
Our weekly Sports programme runs in school on Tuesdays, including a Breakfast and Lunch time club, Funda are with us until April, moving then to Elite!
Our Running Club has a regular Tuesday slot with superb cross-country opportunities for our very experienced trainers and a fantastic KS2 band of runners- any weather- they’re there….and smiling!! On Thursdays Mr Ellison runs the KS2 P.E Sessions, starting at 8am with his Taekwondo class in the school hall . Football training after school on Thursdays with Liam from Elite.
We have Total Dance holding a variety of After School Clubs (Changing each Half Term). Watch out for details ……..plus their fabulous taster sessions!
EliteCoaching work with us throughout the year to assess P.E progress and ensure all areas of fitness are targeted. Workshops are targeted at areas for development for each year group. Elite Coaches also hold KS2 football training sessions and organise League matches with the Lostock Primary League. Elite CPD sessions for teaching staff develop and improve coaching skills too!
School swimming lessons are for Y3&4 from February half term to July. They provide a great benefit -enabling children to learn to swim or improve their skills. School and PTA fund the lessons, whilst parents are asked for a small weekly voluntary contribution towards transport costs- this is greatly appreciated as our rural position means transport costs are a major concern.
There are also other opportunities throughout the year to participate with local schools through Southlands Cluster- for all ages and a variety of Sports competitions and events!We participate in the Active Nation Tryathon at Chorley Leisure Centre, with a Residential Outdoor Pursuits break for Y6: Abseiling, 60 ft Tree Climb,canoeing, and much more!
We now have the Balanceability training for Reception as well as Bikeability for Y6!
For our Y5/6 Fencing and Rugby are further opportunities in summer!
Something for everyone!!

We are working work hard to make sure the exciting opportunities that we access through this Grant are sustainable in school:-
- Our staff work with the coaches each week for their own development and practise. This way, the aims of the Sports’ programme is continued and consolidated through a common shared vision, values and consistent teaching standards.
- Links are made and strengthened through Cluster schools and High School to widen and develop the opportunities for Sports’partners and competitions.
With particular specialist skills and training such as Bikeability, school would continue to outsource this provision to a registered recognised company; with school staff accompanying and consolidating (as they do now) in all training.
