Physical Education


at Alwoodley Primary School

Our vision is to provide high quality physical education and school sport through personal challenge and competition that will lead to life-long participation.

PE plays a vital role in promoting physical activities and a healthy lifestyle in a positive and enjoyable way for all pupils. Our curriculum aims to develop and challenge pupils’ abilities in a range of physical activities and sports – helping them to develop their personal fitness and learn important life skills such as teamwork, honesty and perseverance .


This year the children will have opportunities to take part in a wide variety of different sports including: Athletics, Basketball, Cricket, Dance, Tennis, Football, Gymnastics, Hockey, Netball, Archery, Fencing, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball, Striking and Fielding, Yoga, Tag Rugby and Swimming.

Alwoodley Achieve Gold Again!

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2018 /19 academic year. This is the fourth consecutive year this has been awarded to Alwoodley. The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust, to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are very happy to have been recognised for our success.


From Sports Day to weekly swimming lessons and from various competitions to links with clubs in the local area, we have certainly proved that we are a school that deliver outstanding PE and sport. Throughout the year, many of our pupils have competed in local inter- school and intra-school competitions and we are extremely proud of them for their dedication to all aspects of school sport.


A special thanks to the PE team for consistently delivering outstanding lessons to the children and keeping them active, the parents for encouraging children to lead healthy lifestyles and be as active as possible outside of school and finally to the children for all their enthusiasm. We look forward to applying once again in 2020!
