Gorseybrigg Primary School and Nursery

School Sports & PE


                                 The children look fantastic in the new school PE kit. 


At Gorseybrigg we provide a wide range of sporting opportunities for all children.

This year we have joined up with the North East Derbyshire SHAPE partnership to help provide our school sport competition calendar. SHAPE provide a locally based and meaningful competition structure, rich professional development opportunities for all staff, specialist support for curriculum development, established links to community clubs as well as health and wellbeing, leadership and enrichment programmes.

SHAPE are a longstanding, not for profit, education based provider of Physical Education, school sport and physical activity. The network is unique as it is integrated within both primary and secondary schools across the area with over 70 years’ combined expertise for delivering high quality PE, school sport and physical activity. They have links to National Governing Bodies, Public Health England, the Local Authority, Youth Sport Trust, Sport England, Department for Transport and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.





Together, with the Partnership, we are continually striving to provide a relevant, suitable and vibrant PE, school sport, physical activity, health and wellbeing offer for all young people. As an ethical partnership, we promote a strong, positive and sustainable approach to Physical Education, school sport and physical activity, allowing every child the opportunity to be involved. Our offer will meet the key performance indicators of the PE and Sport Premium funding grant, have a positive impact on the whole school agenda but more importantly, foster a holistic approach to each child and their development.
