Cliffdale Primary Academy thrives on a Physical Education programme that promotes healthy lifestyles that is enjoyable and offers pupils the skills required to continue living healthy and active lives. Pupils experience a wide range of activities which encourage and inspire them to build self- esteem, teamwork and leadership skills enabling them to be the best they can be. We believe that a varied physical education programme offers a fundamental and effective platform to provide opportunities for young people to develop key life skills. These activities include outdoor adventurous activities, horse riding and watersports as well as the more traditional sports and swimming.
We regularly enter sports festivals which offer the opportunity to compete against pupils from other schools locally and regionally, to make new friends and experience new things. They are very popular and an important part of our curriculum.
This is a whole school annual event, enjoyed by all. The activities are differentiated to meet need, ability, age and stage. Pupils compete in their school teams that are vertically grouped. It’s a great day and well supported by families and the community.
