Athletics activities and sports are a key part of our PE and Sports provision, they encompass everything to do with various jumping, running and throwing activities. These skills are taught in a progression from Reception all the way through to Year 6. As the children progress, they learn to take part in both individual and team events, some of which are competitive.
We hold our traditional sports day annually and it's a big event on our school calendar. There's mix of competitive races and fun events, but all children are encouraged and supported to take part in everything.
Families and friends are invited to spectate and share in the fun of the afternoon, supporting and congratulating the children on their achievements.
As a small school, we think it is important to find opportunities for the children to experience events and competitions beyond Leven Valley. To that end, we regularly take part and compete in inter-school competitions with the Cartmel Cluster of Schools, these include a cross-country event, athletics festival and, every 4 years, our Peninsula Games to coincide with the Olympics.
