At The Carlton Junior Academy, we believe that Physical Education plays a vital part in the physical development of the whole child. We regard it to be of equal importance to and complementary with other subjects.  We believe that a high quality physical education will: inspire children to succeed and excel in competitive sport; increase a sense of physical confidence in a way that supports health and fitness; nurture values such as fairness and respect.  Ultimately, we want children to be physically active for sustained periods of time and lead healthy, active lives.


We aim to: deliver regular high quality Physical Education lessons; ensure there are opportunities to experience new and different activities; develop particular physical and mental skills; and give pupils the chance to take part in a range of sporting events.  We aim to deliver a Physical Education curriculum enhancing:

  • Physical skills (agility, control and coordination)
  • Physical development (increase strength, flexibility and endurance)
  • Personal, mental and social skills (co-operation, self-confidence, initiative and leadership)
  • Wider learning skills (listening, observing, collaboration, communication, and decision making)
  • Artistic aspects of human movement
  • Competitive spirit and the desire to improve personal results

As well as in class PE lessons, children have the opportunities for a wide range of after-school sports clubs, such as football, street dance, table tennis and fencing.  We have various school teams who take part in inter-school competition and we have a successful history when competing in these events.

Sport Outside of School

Many of our children take part in sports and physical activities outside of school and their achievements are celebrated in school times.  Several of our children excel at gymnastics and dance,  having won competitions individually and as part of a group.  We have several children that compete in swimming competitions outside of school. Many children play for local football teams and one child has taken part in regional trampolining competitions!

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am keen to find out more about what sports children take part in out of school.  Please email if your child competes for a sports club or team out of school.

The National Games of Remembrance:

To mark the Centenary of the end of WW1, the National Games of Remembrance brought a very special event to Nottingham on the 8th November.

For children and young people from Nottinghamshire and the East Midlands, it was a very special opportunity to be involved in the Greatest Games of Remembrance to mark the Centenary of the end of WW1.

The Games were played at Notts County FC and Nottingham Forest FC, on Thursday 8 November 2018, between the British Army and the German Armed Forces football teams.

The Carlton Junior Academy attended the game at Meadow Lane (Notts County FC) on the 8th November.

Attending the Remembrance Games gave children an insight into sport at a semi-professional level and enabled them to see a high quality sports stadium and experience a ‘match-day atmosphere’.
