Alongside our core skills-based approach to a rich PE curriculum, we aim to foster a real love for sport and physical activity in our pupils. We hope to support pupils in their sporting interests whilst trying to expand their horizons by offering the opportunity to have a go at sports or activities that they would not normally try.

👨🦽Year 6 experience wheelchair basketball Autumn term 2022 👨🦽
Hollie’s thoughts - It was fun and challenging at the start to control the wheelchair, but when I got the hang of it, it got easier. It made me realize that even though you might be in a wheelchair you can still do sports.
Lily’s thoughts - It was the best day of my life at this school ever because it was fun wheeling around and going very fast.
Oliver’s thoughts - it was like experiencing basketball in an entirely different world. The world of having a disability even though I don’t have one. I was speechless about the fact that disabled people can play basketball so well. Nat, the coach, showed us some of his skills and how to dribble while manoeuvering the chair. I really enjoyed it.
Team Rubicon visit EYFS & KS1
Our children enjoyed their visit from Team Rubicon who hosted a scooter & skateboard workshop for each class!
The children demonstrated resilience, determination and perseverance while having their turn.
Competitions and Events
Pupils regularly have the opportunity to represent Belle Vue in sporting events or competitions. This includes pupils of a wide range of abilities and needs. We believe that it is vitally important that every child has the opportunity to represent the school during their time with us, whether this be internally within school against the other house teams or externally against other schools.
Sports Week is an annual event in the Belle Vue calendar. The week begins with every child taking part in a dance with their year group on our KS2 playground as part of our opening ceremony.
Throughout the week, pupils get the chance to try a wide variety of sporting activities run by professional organisations or coaches. In the past this has included activities such as martial arts, wheelchair basketball, cricket, football, trampolining, hockey, rugby, archery and much more...
Throughout our curriculum and extended curriculum, we always look for opportunities for pupils to stay fit and healthy and to promote other physical activities that pupils could become interested in. Throughout the school day, many year groups take advantage of our grounds to complete a 'daily mile'. Within our curriculum all pupils have the chance to visit an outward bounds centre, and in Year 5 all pupils, accompanied by Carlisle Mountaineering Club, climb a local fell.
