At St. Stephen's we believe that sport and PE are important for a child's personal and physical development. In school we provide a wide range of sports and activities so that children can develop their physical skills and try a variety of activities. We provide this through internal teaching and employing specialist coaches through SportsCool who coach the children in gymnastics, dance, athletics, invasion games, striking and fielding. We also invite individuals into school to inspire and educate. The video clips below show the children performing a cheerleading routine and a haka.
We are also a member of the Craven Sports Partnership. This enables children to participate in a variety of sports with other primary schools across Craven. These sports include cross country, swimming, athletics and football.
We also run sports clubs outside school hours.
Football - Year 5 & 6 children can compete with other local schools after school on Friday. Year 3 - 6 have a coaching session in school on Friday.
Netball - Year 5 & 6 pupils can train on Monday night after school with regular tournaments at Holy Family in Keighley.
SportsCool also provide after school sessions in dodgeball, Cheerleading, Zumba, Ultimate Frisbee and Multisports. These sessions run for a half term and incur an additional charge. They are provided by SportsCool.
