We love sport at Queensway and recognise the vital contribution it has to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. The broad and balanced P.E. curriculum that we offer helps children to increase their levels of self-confidence and the ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.
We believe that through the variety of opportunities that PE offers, children can develop a sense of personal achievement, fair play, teamwork and an understanding of the ways in which sport can transcend social and cultural boundaries.
Our curriculum is designed so that all children participate in PE activities for a minimum of 2 hours per week during the normal school day (including swimming in Y4 ).
Through the Government Funding for sport (Sport Premium), we also provide opportunities for pupils to work with PE specialists football, rugby and cricket coaches through Guiseley Community Foundation. We have also improved our school environment to improve activity at playtimes through climbing and balance on our new trim trail. Queensway is involved with St Mary's Catholic Voluntary Academy who organize events for school.
In addition to this, children are encouraged to join clubs and to extend their interest and involvement in sport. These opportunities have led some of our children to participate in various competitions and tournaments, helping them to generate a healthy sense of competitiveness and the will to win.
Sport related after school clubs are always popular at Queensway and, with the involvement of teachers and external agencies we are able to provide a wide range of opportunities during the school year.
