Subject Leader: Mr Whinn
At Norman Street we believe that sport and physical education are fundamental to the early development of children's skills. Through participation in sport and P.E, children learn the key values of:
- Team work
- Fair play
- Respect for themselves and others
- Adherence to rules
They also provide opportunities for children to cope and understand winning and losing and in this way sport and P.E impact on children's social and moral development, whilst learning new skills.
It is our aim that all children take part in whole school events such as sports day, which takes place annually.In addition, we have a number of highly successful teams, who take part in competitive events in the school calendar; inter-school competitions and festivals, gymnastic competitions and locally organised events.
Whilst receiving high quality P.E lessons weekly, our children also have a wide number of opportunities to participate in after school club sports activities, which may involve community facilities such as Melbourne Park, The Neil Centre at Carlisle United and other local schools. Gymnastics club, Dance club, Netball club and key stage one football clubs take place in school.
We have excellent relationships with our local secondary schools and use the facilities at Central Academy to participate in skills workshops with our children.
