“The school’s sporting provision is excellent and is greatly enjoyed by pupils. There is a very strong focus on improving pupils’ physical well-being, particularly those with additional needs. Sports funding provided by the government is used to great effect to introduce pupils to new sports, such as surfing, and to improve the skills of teachers.” OFSTED, 2014
PE at Bude Junior
We provide a wide range of curriculum PE to all of our pupils which aims to develop the children’s skills and techniques as well as promoting the ‘Spirit of the Games Values’*.
Every year each class receives an eight-week swimming block taught by ‘Splash’ swimming coaches.
We offer a variety of extra-curricular clubs which are open to children of all abilities. These change throughout the year to reflect the sporting seasons.
Bude Junior strongly believes in the importance of competitive sport and enter an extensive list of tournaments and festivals. In 2015-2016 we entered teams in the following sports: tag rugby, football, netball, kwik cricket, gymnastics, basketball, hockey, tri golf, tennis, rounders, cycling, swimming and badminton.
Bude Junior is part of the ‘Bude Primary Sports’ cluster. The group work closely with Budehaven Community School to ensure all of our children have opportunities to participate in competitive and non-competitive tournaments and festivals.
Spirit of the Games Values
- The Spirit of the Games Values were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around, and focus on personal excellence through competition.These values have been successfully applied by schools to developing a range of behaviours, qualities and inter-personal skills with their students based on sporting experiences, scenarios and attitudes.The six values are as follows…
With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
