Physical Education

We are proud of our Physical Education at Cranfield Academy! It is our belief that sport and physical activity enriches the lives of our children. From our sporting efforts both in and out of school we always aspire to do our very best.

Physical Education at Cranfield:

Every week, children at Cranfield participate in two hours of Physical Education. Children’s learning is based around indoor and outdoor units of games, dance, gymnastics and athletics. Up to date information detailing your child’s Physical Education for any given term can be found in the termly Curriculum Newsletters. For more information about Physical Education at Cranfield, please speak to our P.E. Leader, Miss Hubbert, or see any of the information below.

Encouraging Sporting Success:

At Cranfield, we are committed to actively continuing to build on the Olympic Legacy in a variety of ways! Please find information below about how we do this at Cranfield!

Sports Ambassadors:

We are very proud to have Sports Ambassadors at Cranfield each year who proudly wear their Sport Leader t-shirts and represent and support Cranfield in a range of physical activity. Their role includes supporting Key Stage One children in external tournaments, living the Olympic sporting values we aspire to at Cranfield Academy and representing sportsmanship in all of their activity. Over the years the Sports Ambassadors have been chosen to help set up and run an activity at Sports Day as well as other school events.

Our Sports Ambassadors for 2017 – 2018: Jamie Adams, Jordan Toms, Archie Wallis, Harry Lawley, Ewan McLachlan, Charlotte Pleasants, Emily Potter, Aisha Koguna, Aubrey Sofer and Grace O’mara.

Play Leaders:

Under the leadership of our Sports Ambassadors, we are very fortunate to have a fantastic team of trained Year Four “Play Leaders”. This committed and responsible group of children proudly support the younger children in participating in active and enjoyable playtimes, as well as leading activities for their peers in Key Stage Two! They encourage all children to participate throughout the week and can support specific children when needed. These children thoroughly enjoy their role and are great at supporting with sports event in school too. 

Our Play Leaders for 2017-2018 are:  Jamie, Jordan, Archie, Harry, Ewan M, Charlotte, Emily, Aisha, Izzy, Aubrey, Grace, MinminLleyton, Andres, Ahmed, Emmanuel, Dania, Finlay, Roxy, Katie, Preston, Will, Eva, Francisca, Liam W, Kyra, Ewan I, Kian, Corey, Katy, Willow, Daisy, Esme, Erin and Ellis.
