At Chalfont St Giles Village School, we believe that every child should enjoy a range of experiences within physical education and sport. Through our extensive curriculum, extra-curricular clubs and other opportunities, we promote positive attitudes to health and wellbeing, the development of fundamental skills and a love for being active.
During physical education lessons, children develop fundamental skills and knowledge. As well
as developing physical PE skills we also encourage creativity, collaboration and self-challenge.
Our curriculum equips children with the essential abilities to maximise potential, and enjoy long-
term participation in physical activity and sport. We use the Complete PE scheme to support
teaching and learning across the school.
Across the year children consolidate and further develop their skills through a range of
competitive activities, which include games such as tag rugby, football, cricket, high 5 netball,
gymnastics, dance and athletics.
Through our community links and membership of our Buckinghamshire School Sports
Partnership, our children attend competitive sporting events including ‘PE festivals’ within the
local area. All these festivals embody an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not
only physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and
leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children.
At the Infant School we have a great scheme called Play Leaders, whereby Year 2 children are
trained to lead games and play with the younger children. This is a great opportunity to develop
valuable communication, organisation and leadership skills.
At the Junior School we have a fantastic scheme called Sports Leaders, whereby Year 6
children plan and lead a club for four weeks. Sports Leaders have run a variety of clubs for year
three and four children including: tag rugby, netball, gymnastics, badminton, circuits, football,
basketball and dance. This is an opportunity for children to learn valuable planning, organisation,
communication and leadership skills.
Swimming is currently offered to Year 5 children for 10 weeks of a term. Those children not
meeting the NC objectives are offered top-up swimming in Year 6.
This year we have been awarded a BSSP Kitemark awarded in recognition for those schools whose results demonstrate Safe Practice in the delivery of their School Swimming Programme.
We are delighted to announce we you have been graded a “green” school which means that we are entitled to display the following kitemark.
Sports Week involves a whole week of exciting, gentle competitive team games as well as the
opportunity to experience new ways of being active. Activities include events such as a joint
school mini-marathon, skipping workshops, multi skills carousal of activities and many more
challenges. On the last day we end our week with a well attended sports day which gives each
child the opportunity to participate in games and races of a gently competitive nature whilst being
supported by their teachers, peers and parents.
We have joined a cluster of local primary schools in Buckinghamshire that is run by Amersham School. Our level two membership gives us access to:
