We believe that pupils should be encouraged to be active so that they can live life to the full and utilise the gift of life that Our Father gave us. 



The intent of our PE curriculum is to develop a life long love of being active by: 
• developing skill and competence in a broad range of physical activities
• develop a level of fitness by being physically active for sustained periods of time
• engaging in competitive sports and activities
• leading  healthy, active lives


The curriculum at Linthwaite Ardron CE (VA) delivers opportunities for pupils to enjoy being active whilst participating in a number of disciplines. The focus for PE lessons is on pupils increasing in skill so that they can engage in physical active out of school, including out of school community clubs.


The children complete each key stage with a high proficiency in each aspect of PE. Children are aware of the link between physical activity and good mental health and understand it’s significance as part of a healthy lifestyle. The school achieves well in a number of sporting activities and achieved an active school award at bronze level in 2018-19 (award not available in 2019/20) in recognition of its PE provision and children’s access to competitive sports, which the school has maintained.
