About Us  »  PE & Sports  »  PE Documents


Working in collaboration with real PE, the Physical Education programme at Stanningley Primary School is so much more than teaching physical skills and sports.

It is also about helping pupils understand their body (Health and Fitness) and the development of the whole child through PE, covering Physical, Personal, Social and Creative skills and how to apply them and transfer them to different life situations.

At Stanningley Primary School we have adopted a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils… ‘The knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life.’ The curriculum provides opportunities for the pupils to meet both the physical and personal development outcomes.

Personal Development

‘The curriculum and the school’s wider work support pupils to develop resilience, confidence and independence and lead a healthy and active lifestyle, helping them to know how to keep physically and mentally healthy.’

Behaviours & Attitudes

‘We believe that the pupils at Stanningley Primary School consistently have highly positive attitudes...’
‘They are committed to their learning, know how to study effectively, are resilient to setbacks and take pride in their achievements.’

"The drive to ensure that all pupils are physically active through a diverse range of events and opportunities. PE, physical activity and school sport are an integral part of Stanningley Primary School. The PE lead shows great passion and determination to ensure that opportunities to be active and to participate are available to all. The REAL PE scheme is used effectively to develop and apply knowledge and skills progressively across year groups. A sports coach works across school to deliver lessons and clubs and is a great role model for the pupils. A wide range of lunchtime and after school clubs are available, with pupil voice influencing what is on offer. There are many opportunities to take part in a range of competitions and pupils and staff are rightly proud of their success. The many opportunities have enabled the school to achieve the Platinum Schools Games Mark. The outdoor space is used creatively and has a range of different equipment. Active travel is encouraged at every opportunity through bike, scooter or pedestrian training and there is storage for bikes and scooters. The PE and Sports premium is used very effectively to ensure that the impact is sustainable. The daily mile is well established and ensures pupils are active outside of PE and break times. Pupils are encouraged to be active at home through the newly introduced ‘Burst’ app. Staff help children understand the importance of being active but also use physical activity as a further opportunity to embed the behaviour policy and the school values."

School Sport and Activity Action Plan

This action plan is a statement of intent, setting out a joint commitment from the Department for Education DfE, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport DCMS, and Department for Health and Social Care DHSC, to ongoing collaboration at national level to ensure that sport and physical activity are an integral part of both the school day and after-school activities, so that all children have the opportunity to take part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. The plan recognises the importance of daily physical activity. Physical activity is a key part of developing a healthy lifestyle and plays an important role in maintaining a healthy weight. The plan builds on the measures set out in Chapter 2 of our Childhood Obesity by further supporting schools to create environments which encourage pupils to lead healthy, active lifestyles. The importance of physical activity in promoting children and young peoples mental wellbeing is equally clear Physical and mental health are inextricably linked. Numerous studies confirm a positive association between physical activity and increased self esteem, emotional wellbeing and future aspirations, and physical activity is also associated with lower levels of anxiety and depression. It is clear that there are no quick fixes but we must take the first steps now to ensure that our children and young people develop healthy, active lifestyles and have the best chances in life.

Generation Inactive 2 - 'Nothing About Us, Without Us'

On the 12th September 2019 UKActive launched Generation Inactive 2. Nothing About Us, Without Us. Generation Inactive 2 Nothing About Us, Without Us, aims to go beyond the first edition by providing a framework for understanding the multi-faceted and interactive effects of personal, social and environmental factors that influence childrens physical activity behaviour. Whilst many organisations have sought to tackle this problem through one single domain, the time is now to take a whole battlefield approach to tackling the war against the challenges faced by future generations. This report enables governors, head teachers and school leaders to plan for the long term, based on a government commitment to maintain a ringfenced PE, sport and physical activity premium as part of a whole-school approach to childrens health and physical activity until at least 2030.
