At Field Lane, we believe that all pupils are entitled to an enjoyable, competitive, inclusive and diverse PE and Sport experiences. We are committed to providing children with excellent sporting provision. We aim to develop pupils who will be physically active and can flourish in a range of different physical activities. As demonstrated by our recent Gold School Games kitemark award 2018/2019.

The aims of our PE curriculum are to develop pupils who:

  • Have physical literacy and can learn the fundamental multi-skills needed
  • Have an understanding of the importance of being active in promoting long-term health and well-being
  • Children develop and apply fundamental movements within every lesson.
  • Are active throughout each PE lessonAre able to improve their own and others’ performance
  • Develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and               co-ordination
  • Can aspire to be young leaders and help organise and motivate excellent sporting attitudes in other children
  • In Key Stage 2, can swim at least 25 metres before the end of Year 6 and know how to remain safe in and around water


How do we teach PE at Field Lane?

Our children at Field Lane participate in 2 PE lessons each week. (Years 1-6) Teachers use and adapt the Complete PE Scheme of work which provides progressive curriculum lessons in line with the 2014 National Curriculum. 

At Field Lane, we believe that being active should not just be confined to PE lessons. All classes in Years 1-6 take part in daily active playtimes and challenges, which are activities designed to keep our children moving and give them an active burst throughout the day. We enjoy teaching active lessons in other curriculum areas like Science, Geography, English & Maths and like to use our different outdoor areas. 

We encourage children to have good sporting attitudes in PE. We follow and take part in the School Games. We teach children to develop their values and transferable life skills in PE for example: having fairness and respect in games and lessons.

We teach inclusive PE lessons to all abilities, by differentiating lessons, skills and equipment. We aim for our children to have a positive experience in PE lessons and want all our pupils to enjoy being active.

Assessments are based on teacher assessments and observations. Each class has a tracker to monitor children’s progress over the year. Pupils are encouraged to reflect on their learning and take part in self and group reflections and feedback within lessons.

Usually, children in Years 1-6 take part in many competitions and sports festivals over the academic year. These are run on a weekly basis by the North Kirklees School Sport Partnership into which we pay membership to. Since the Covid 19 pandemic we have adapted these to virtual events and we have class bubble challenges to compete in too.

Children in Years 4 & 5 attend weekly swimming lessons at Batley Swimming Baths.

We offer many extra-curricular sports clubs and activities during lunch breaks and after school to increase children’s physical activity. We aim to increase children’s enjoyment when being active and where we offer new experiences and sports.

Every year, our school takes part in a sport for all week, to educate our children in healthy lifestyles and the importance of physical activity. Over the week, our school takes part in various sporting activities and hosts a huge sports day held at Batley Bulldogs Stadium.
