Sports and physical activity are a key part of the week at Calstock school. We value the strength, confidence and independence that sports, games, and active play bring to our children. PE is a valued part of the curriculum.
Our afterschool clubs (netball, football, athletics, cross country) are well attended, and for some the annual sports day is the highlight of the year! For a small school we (metaphorically) punch above our weight!
We also value the gentler arts, and encourage children to take a rounded perspective on physical activity. We have begun an orienteering club – giving children the skills to explore the fantastic wild spaces on our doorstep.
