Savile Park Primary School

Headteacher: Mrs J Boylan

Physical Education

We aim to give our children a broad and balanced PE curriculum which encourages all children to take part in physical activity both in school and at home, and which develops lifelong healthy living habits.

Our curriculum covers dance, games, gymnastics, athletics and outdoor and adventure activities. We also encourage outside and active learning across the curriculum whenever possible to help to utilise active learning. We aim to develop skills, creativity and resilience by practising the different aspects of PE, setting ourselves targets, and persevering when we find things difficult.

 

As well as working with sports coaches from Project Sports, we regularly work with specialist coaches, both in school and at outside venues. This includes Year 2 children playing tennis at Queen’s Sports Club, a visiting dance specialist coming in to work with classes, working alongside a Phunky Foods coach, Year 4 children going swimming every week at the Halifax pool and Year 6 attending the outward bound residential course at Robinwood. We also invite different coaches into school during our Health Week programme in the summer term.

 

Our annual sports days are held in the summer term for KS1 and KS2. Parents are invited to come and watch and each child tries to gain points for their house.

Our playground at the Moorfield site has a play trail and both sites have playground markings like a hopscotch layout to encourage playing different games.

We use different websites to encourage the children to be active at home. These include:
