Overview and Vision of PE, Physical Activity and School Sport


PE, physical activity and school sport has always had a high profile at Farsley Springbank Primary School as we strongly believe that they contribute to the holistic development of young people. Our high quality PE curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in both competitive sport and other activities involving physical literacy. It is through these activities that pupils become physically confident; they learn that physical activity is ‘fun’ and crucial in terms of leading a healthy lifestyle. Our children compete in many competitions and other activities which build character and embed key values such as teamwork, fairness and respect for themselves and others. We recognise that PE, physical activity and school sport make an extensive contribution towards aspects of pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

Our school vision for PE and Sport is:


To provide opportunities for our children to experience, enjoy and excel in high quality PE and school sport incorporating a diverse range of motivational activities which offer life-long learning through challenge and competition.
