Sports and P.E.

Our Belief

At Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy, we believe that learning involves the whole of our bodies. To be good learners we need to have active bodies and minds!

Vital to a healthy mind is a healthy body, and we seek to encourage this in our children through the experiences and opportunities planned for them during school time, and after school hours.

We follow the National Curriculum programmes of study for Physical Education; we believe this helps us to create a firm foundation for all children – from EYFS right up to Year 6.

National Curriculum programmes of study: Physical Education (Key Stages 1 and 2)



Cliff Park Junior School has a strong sporting tradition and we take part in a wide range of sporting activities, including: football, tag rugby, tennis, indoor and outdoor athletics, gymnastics, swimming, cross county, cricket, multi-skills and cycling. We frequently enter into local and regional competitions with considerable success and have been County Champions in a number of sports.

Sports Provision

Throughout the year, children have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities. We work closely alongside the Norwich City Community Sports’ Foundation, who work in school two afternoons each week and deliver half of our PE curriculum. This enables children to access specialist coaching on a regular basis. Children also have an additional skills and techniques lesson within their year group each week.

In addition, we offer a range of sporting clubs at lunchtimes and after school. These vary throughout the year and are advertised via the office.

We work closely with Premier Sport, a local specialist provider, who deliver after school sessions throughout the school year.


All children are able to participate in the Golden Mile Challenge, a fitness and stamina programme taking place throughout the year. Children compete against personal best to gain awards, as well as competing against local and national schools.

Children representing our school have competed with other children from local schools in the Winter Games Gymnastics competition held at Ormiston Venture Academy in February. These children worked extremely hard on a floor routine and bench show. We are very proud of their achievements.

We are making the most of current additional sports funding by developing expertise and opportunities for the children in different ways. Please see our ‘PE and Sports Premium’ page to find out how.

After school Clubs

Many children take part in after school sports activities such as football, dance, multi-sports and gymnastics. There are currently opportunities for children to get involved in the following sports clubs out of school hours, with Premier Sport:

Monday: Football All Year Groups
Tuesday: Street Dance All Year Groups
Thursday: Gymnastics/Multi Sports All Year Groups
