PE. school sport and physical activity resource


Over the past couple of weeks the Lancashire SGO team have been developing a PE. school sport and physical activity resource in line with our new School Games work programme.  The resource is centred around 4 key themes:


Move - helping children to achieve 60 active minutes

Learn - a FMS skill activity for KS1 and a KS2 sport skill activity adapted from the Lancashire SOW form a weekly PE activity for children to undertake

Challenge - A weekly personal best challenge linked to the weekly PE learn activity along with current trending or new challenges are included

Play - providing ideas and resources for children to be active through play



The links are as follows:


Year 1 & 2 (Overview)





Year 3-6 (Overview)





Any videos, photo's that are posted will go into a weekly prize draw.  This is for children only!  However to help this campaign gain traction it would also be good for you to have a go at the challenges and share this with your own children.

Our School Vision 2019/20

Inspiring children to be resilient and aspirational learners, within a positive and considerate community.

Welcome to our school website!


Brunshaw Primary School is a happy and successful school located near to the football club in Burnley.

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our school, so that we can provide the very best education for every one of our children.

We offer a wide and varied curriculum for children from Nursery (age 3) to Year 6. We ensure that learning is both fun and challenging, so that all children have the knowledge and skills needed to make the very best of their future lives.

We have a wide range of activities throughout the school day, such as all Key Stage 2 children learning a musical instrument. We also have a varied selection of after school clubs, such as first aid for children, drama and many different sports. Our breakfast club operates from 8.20am until 9.00 am and it is only 50p per day or £2 per week for all children.

We are a larger than average primary school, situated across two sites (the Foundation Centre building for Nursery and Reception and the Main School building for Years 1 to 6). We currently have 470 children, 21 teachers, 27 support staff, 3 learning mentors, 1 family support worker and 1 children’s councillor. There are 2 classes in each year group.

If you would like to have a look around our school, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can call in to the main school office or call us on 01282 423280.
