Clarborough Primary School

Be the best you can be!

Physical Education (PE)

Our aim is to empower students to develop healthy habits, instil fitness literacy and become lifelong participants of physical activity.


At Clarborough Primary School, we aim to provide children with the opportunity to participate, compete in and enjoy a wide variety of school sport. Our aim is to create a safe and stimulating environment where children feel involved, engaged and challenged. We would like our children to develop their physical ability, tactical knowledge, leadership capacity, fitness, and team work. The way in which our Physical Education curriculum is devised and delivered allows the children to improve their mental, social, emotional and physical well-being.


All children at Clarborough receive the statutory 2 hours of Physical Education every week. Through the new PE and Sport Funding Grant, the school have been able to employ the professional services of a fully qualified sports coach, Mr Ben Ennals from Newtactics. Ben supports our class teachers in delivering high-quality PE lessons.


Wider Opportunities:


Pupils are given the opportunity to go swimming at some point during their school life, allowing for more children to achieve the national standard of leaving the school of being able to swim at least 25m.


All pupils also have the opportunity to complete the National Cycling Proficiency scheme in Key Stage 2, enabling the children to become safe and confident on-road cyclists.




Children are expected to wear the following PE kit:

  •  #TeamClarborough House t-shirt or plain white t-shirt
  • Navy blue hooded sweatshirt or cardigan and navy tracksuit bottoms/leggings/navy blue shorts or navy blue skort/skirt
  • Black or white training shoes or plimsolls
  • Football boots for football practice or matches only
  • Shin pads and long socks must always be worn for football matches/training
  • Trunks/tight shorts or one-piece swimming costumes should be worn for swimming, baggy swimming shorts or bikinis are not permitted by the swimming instructors. Goggles are only allowed if a permission slip has been completed. 


Clubs - we hope to start clubs soon subject to guidance from the Department for Education  


The Six School Games values - Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination and Teamwork - were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the 'spirit' of the School Games.
