PE and Sport Premium
Every year at Langdale CE Primary School, children receive quality first teaching in Physical Education. This is delivered in a range of different ways, by qualified teachers and coaches using the fantastic facilities on offer to us in our school grounds and in the surrounding community.
Every child who leaves our school at the end of Year 6 will have experienced a wealth of different sports and have acquired skills and knowledge to take forward with them into secondary school and life beyond.
Our school values of understand others, try new things, imagine, reflect and improve, push yourself and don't give up are perfectly placed to run alongside the values of the School Games.
Throughout all of our PE lessons and during competitions and festivals which we participate in, we always talk to the children about the values we will see on show. Children develop a growing knowledge of these values, and their meanings, through participating in sports (individually and in teams).
In 2020-21, we had to adapt our PE and sport offering slightly to align with the Covid protocols at the time. We took part in as many virtual events as we could and competed against our cluster of schools in this way. Intra-school matches and events were also participated in to allow our pupils to experience competitive matches. We are hopeful that in the coming academic year we can get back to more face-to-face events as well as continuing with the virtual competitions.
In 2019-20, we ensured that all children in Key Stage Two had access to a range of sporting events. These events were played at a variety of levels, from friendly festivals to competitive competitions.
During the school closure (summer term) children were encouraged to stay active via social media. Links to Joe Wicks, BBC Bitesize, Oak Academy plus others were shared often as was the National Sports Week challenge.
In 2018-19 we made sure that all children within Key Stage 2 had access to a range of sporting inter-school festivals and competitions to participate in. All children took part in at least 5 events over the academic year. We also developed our provision within school so that all children experienced some form of intra-school events; such as house matches or class games within PE lessons.
Key Stage 1 also participated in friendly sporting festivals, such as cricket, as well as joining in with whole school taster sessions in Judo and Cumberland Wrestling.

Sports Day 2021
We were very lucky to be able to hold our annual sports day this year. Although we were unable to have our usual supporters, it was still a fantastic event with lots of smiles and encouraging words being shared amongst the participants. Everyone, from Nursery through to Y6, took part in an array of events designed and led by our Sports Leaders in Maple class.
As part of our sports day, we also took part in 'Race for Life' for Cancer Research UK. Pupils raised funds by pledging to run for 10 minutes around the large sports field. We were delighted to have raised over £660 for such a worthy cause.
During the summer term 2021, every child in Key Stage 1 and 2 took part in a 6 week block of adventure learning. As part of these sessions, skills were developed in: hill walking, orienteering and map use, water safety, first aid and knot typing to name just a few. Some of these sessions also developed skills in canoeing and sailing. Each of the sessions built to enable Beech and Maple class to participate in a long distance walk (planned by themselves) which led them back to school for an overnight camp. These sessions helped to tick a lot of skills listed in our 'Skill Tree Passport' as well as developing our physical and emotional states.
Youth Sport Trust - National School Sports Week 2020
As part of the National School Sports Week, a challenge was set for all pupils (and staff/families) to get active whether at home as part of their remote learning or in the school bubbles.
The 'Langdale School Challenge' consisted of seeing how many star jumps, ball catches, lunges, squats and hops could be completed in 1 minute.
Competition both at home and in the bubbles was fierce!
We completed the following amounts as a school community:
Star jumps - 2561
Ball catches - 1993
Lunges - 2187
Squats - 2418
Hops - 3109
WOW!! A very well done to everyone who took part.
Sports relief 2020
On Friday 13th March, we took part in Sports relief by running our daily mile. Everyone in the school, from nursery and reception right up to year 6 (and the adults), took part in the run which took us out of the school grounds and down the footpath to Bays Brown Campsite and back. The atmosphere was fantastic and everyone supported each other to walk, jog, skip or run the distance. We managed to raise a very impressive £75.73, which will be donated and used for some fantastically worthwhile causes.
