PE and Sport at Valley View
To support children to be active, lead a healthy lifestyle and achieve their best through high quality PE and sport.
Sports Premium Funding
From September 2013 schools have received £8,000 (plus £5 per pupil between the ages for 5 -11) to improve sport and PE in primary schools. At Valley View we have used the money in the following way to support our teachers to deliver high quality PE and to provide our children with opportunities to be active, healthy and achieve the best they can.

At Valley View we offer a variety of activities in our PE curriculum including gymnastics, dance, invasion games, athletics, swimming, cricket and tennis. We want our children to be confidant movers and participate in PE enthusiastically and know the benefits of leading an active and healthy lifestyle. We introduce the children to competition through intra-school events (competitions within school). We teach children to try their best, show good sportsmanship and be good winners and gracious losers.
Our sports facilities include two halls. We also have two playgrounds and two large fields to work on. To promote healthy and active playtimes we also have two trim trails.
PE and sport is taught by different adults. Class teachers may teach their classes or work alongside specialist sports coaches to deliver high quality PE. We use specialist sports coaches to deliver high quality PE. We use specialist coaching staff for football, cricket and rugby, and Bradford City coaches support us in a variety of invasion games and multiskills. In addition to this staff are supported by a specialist PE expert from Leeds West Academy who works in school two hours a week. We also have a qualified swimming instructor who leads our swimming. All teaching staff are trained in the use of our 'Real PE' teaching scheme.
School Sport (including competitions)
At Valley View we are incredibly proud of our extra curricular sporting activities and achievements. We have achieved a Platinum Award for Sport for 2017-18 and 2018/19. We run a variety of clubs, led by coaches, teachers and teaching assistants. We attend sports events regularly and aim to involve as many children as possible. Match reports can be found on this website and in the Valley View Voice. We have strong links with local sports clubs such as Stanningley Rugby Club and are members of British Gymnastics, Netball England, Youth Sport Trust and Sainsbury's School Games. We also celebrate out of school sporting achievements in our 'celebration assemblies' on Fridays.
