At Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School we won the Sport Silver Award in 2023 and are aiming to receive the

Gold award in 2024!  We are committed to children receiving at least the statutory amount of PE tuition and for every child in Key Stages One and Two to attend a sports club or represent the school at a sporting fixture or festival over the course of an academic year.


Children have a range of sporting opportunities throughout the year and are taught skills in the following areas of PE:


  1. Gymnastics
  2. Net and Wall Games
  3. Invasion Games
  4. Dance
  5. Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  6. Striking and Fielding Games
  7. Athletics


In Year 5 and 6 all children receive swimming lessons.


We also use our feeder secondary school, Budehaven to provide us with sports coaching, clubs and sporting festivals.


At Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School, we encourage children to engage in a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of physical activity for both physical and mental wellbeing. Through high quality Physical Education teaching, our children have the opportunity to ‘be the best they can be’ in line with our school values.


Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for physical education, to facilitate physical confidence and competence in learners. We strive to do this by providing both competitive and non-competitive environments to participate in a broad range of physical activity opportunities. Through the Bude cluster school programme at Budehaven secondary, our children are invited to attend tournaments and festivals at both intra and inter school levels. Sportsmanship and leadership values are promoted at all times. School staff and external coaches offer a broad range of after-school clubs. Our Year 6 Sports Leaders provide structured physical activities for children over lunch times. Children have cross-curricular links with healthy life-styles through Science and SCARF (PSHE) sessions.


To ensure high standards of teaching in physical education, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. Physical education is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum and at Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School implementation of the physical education curriculum is in line with 2014 Primary National Curriculum requirements for KS1 and KS2 and the Foundation Stage Curriculum in England. This provides a broad framework and outlines the knowledge and skills taught in each key stage.

At Kilkhampton, we use Arena as a cohesive scheme of work addressing the statutory aspects of the National Curriculum. In Early Years and Key Stage 1, the focus is primarily on fundamental movement skills. In Key Stage 2 we build on these skills and apply them in game situations though a broad range of sports.

At Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School we are:

  • Raising the profile of P.E and sport.
  • Providing 2hrs of active, exciting and fun P.E lessons each week.
  • Referencing how exercise helps the body in lessons.
  • Providing a well-balanced menu at lunchtimes.
  • Only allowing a healthy snack at break-time.
  • A broad experience of a range of sports through the Bude cluster programme at Budehaven.
  • Regular CPD opportunities for staff from external coaches to develop knowledge and understanding.
  • Increased participation in competitive sports through the Bude cluster programme and the Cornwall School Games.
  • Year 6 Sports Leaders to complete PlayMaker (SLQ) Award, undertake training and provide lunch time opportunities for other children.
  • Keeping a register of children who attend events to ensure the majority of children participate in a variety of activities.
  • Teachers are encouraged to undertake short, vigorous aerobic activity between lessons.
  • Year 6 sports leaders are given the opportunity to lead activities at lunch times for younger children.
