Physical Education at Southroyd Primary and Nursery School


Our school vision for PE and Sport is:

"To provide opportunities for all children to enjoy and experience a range of daily physical activity, high quality PE lessons and school sport."


At Southroyd, we believe that physical activity and education contributes to optimum behaviour, physical fitness and emotional well-being which assists pupils in reaching their learning potential.

We aim to deliver high quality PE through a range of sporting activities and opportunities for our children.

Our bespoke curriculum allows staff to adapt and alter their planning to the needs of the children in their class.

Through our high quality PE curriculum we intend to make sure all pupils:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time. 
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities. 
  • Lead healthy, active lives. 


At Southroyd Primary we aim to develop confident, self-assured and physically literate pupils who enjoy a range of P.E. and sporting provision, matched to their needs.

We believe that the Fundamental Movement Skills (Agility, Balance and Co-ordination) are key to children being able to engage with and enjoy PE, Sport and Physical Activity. Once children are physically confident and have experienced PE in a fun/ engaging manner, then we actively encourage children to begin to compete in sports and activities. At Southroyd, we have a commitment to engage our children in as many outside sporting opportunities and events as possible. This is with the aim to inspire pupils further so they engage in physical activity to lead healthy lives.


Our broad and balanced PE curriculum also encourages teachers to consider key skills, concepts and behaviours expected in the KS2 Physical Education curriculum:

The Psychomotor Domain – the doing physical being (Physical competence, growth and competitive).

Cognitive Domain – the thinking physical being (Decision making, confident, tactician, creativity, resilience and independent.

The Affective Domain – the feeling physical being: (involvement, engagement, motivation, honesty, fair play, teamwork, communication, leadership, predict and judge outcomes).

We believe that this is essential for helping our pupils understand their body and how through the physical they can
develop their social skills, thinking skills and emotional skills and learn how to apply them and transfer them to different life situations. Creating well rounded active citizens.


Sporting Opportunities

At Southroyd, the profile of PE and sport is one of our top priorities. 

Our children are exposed to a great range of sporting opportunities, competitions and world class sporting events.
