Physical Education (PE)

PE Statement of intent 

At Christ the King we recognise the value of Physical Education. Our intent is to develop the enjoyment and confidence of pupils to participate in physical activities; enabling them to achieve personal successes and providing them with lifelong physical skills. We also strive to educate pupils about healthy and active lives alongside fostering positive attitudes towards physical education.

PE & School Sport

Encouraging children to be active is very important to us at Christ the King. Physical education lessons are led by our very own sports coach – Mr Ashworth - who has the skills and knowledge required to ensure our children make good progress in their physical literacy development.

The children have at least, 2 hours of PE lessons per week and take part in a broad and engaging curriculum , including invasion games, gymnastics, dance and athletics.

Swimming is also taught and assessed in key stage 2, delivered by the Burnley Leisure team through the school sports partnership. We encourage the children to be active throughout the school day, whatever the weather! We also run before and after school sports clubs for all classes, on a rotating termly offer, including archery, dodgeball and active blast circuit training. CTK also work with external sport providers who deliver exciting and unique after school club programmes.
