Get Active at Shipley
Our commitment to Healthy lifestyles extends to the comprehensive provision for physical education. The school has been awarded the School Games Gold Award (2019). Pupils have at least two hours of quality PE per week with additional active time such as the Daily Mile and outdoor learning. There is a very diverse range of after school clubs for all to enjoy including tennis, basketball, golf, wheels, multi-sports, gymnastics and many more.
Active Sussex - Case Study
Read more about our wheels programme, through which we aim to give every pupil the opportunity to develop the skills to ride a bike through school provision to ensure our pupils have the skills to access physical activity for life.
Children in EYFS and KS1 have their own scooters and trikes and are planning to build a new cycle track in the playground. Pupils at this early age also learn
the health and safety aspects of this type of activity.
Currently 25% of pupils regularly attend our weekly extracurricular club which now always runs at capacity
The school has now achieved its long term aim for this programme and can boast that 100% of its year 6 pupils successfully pass Bikeability (level 2) each year.
