Physical Eduction (PE)

Each class has two PE lessons per week. In each year children experience these main activities – games, gymnastics, dance, athletics and swimming, the latter being in Y4. Children swim in Y4 and are expected to be able to swim 25 metres by the time they complete their course.

Y6 are also given the opportunity to enjoy a week’s residential visit to an outdoor pursuits centre for activities such as caving, mountain biking and canoeing. We have attended Towerwood on Windermere for the past 3 years.  This is an LCC Centre who offer fantastic facilities, knowledge and support for our children.

Chorley Sports Partnership are based here at Buckshaw. These specialist coaches deliver high quality sports clubs after school, along with highly structured Sports Clubs during our school holidays. Full details of the clubs on offer and their start and end dates and times can be obtained from the school office.  We offer different clubs every half term.

We also facilitate a weekly Taekwondo Club.  Ellison’s Taekwondo hire our hall each Tuesday and provide a high quality club for children of all ages.  Just pop along to the school hall on a Tuesday afternoon (from 3.20pm) and have a chat to Vicky for more information.
