PE & Sport at Kippax North


Our Vision

Kippax North believes physical education is an essential part of a child’s educational development. Developing a balanced program offering a variety of activities provides students an opportunity to develop acceptable fitness levels, a broad spectrum of skills and the knowledge necessary to use those skills for a lifetime of active participation.  As such Kippax North is committed to delivering a high quality PE and Sport curriculum that develops knowledge, fundamental movement skills, fitness and social skills to allow our children to enjoy leading healthy, active lifestyles.

PE kit policy

The school PE kit is based on ease of wear, fitness for purpose, value for money and building a sense of community.  School sweatshirts, hoodies and T-shirts with the school logo are available from Mrs Deaton at the school office. 

All children should change into a PE kit for lessons (different from their usual school uniform).

An indoor PE kit comprises:

  • White t-shirt
  • Navy/dark shorts
  • Indoor pumps

An outdoor PE kit comprises:

  • White t-shirt
  • Navy/dark tracksuit bottoms
  • Navy/dark fleece or jumper
  • Trainers

All jewellery should be removed and long hair tied back for every PE lesson.

If your child cannot participate in PE for a session they must have a signed and dated note from home.  We still expect them to get changed into their PE kit because they will often be able to take part in the learning, just not the practical application.  For example:

  • Recordings – film children doing skills, interview children
  • Umpire/referee: start/stop game, enforce rules, be neutral
  • Supporter: praise/motivate, feedback positives in performances
  • Organiser: Keep everyone on task, record results, timekeeper for games
  • Team captain: make sure team uses tactics, make decisions in games
  • Coach: suggest new tactics, help individuals improve

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety July 2018

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?



What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?



What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?



Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
