PE Curriculum

Our children complete 2 hours of PE/Sport every week. This consists of dance, gymnastics, games and athletics. We also go swimming in Year 3.

These activities promote control, skilfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. They also provide opportunities for our pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and as a member of a team.

At Lindfield we are proud of our intra and inter school competitions. We work in our house teams in mini events throughout the year, which culminates in our School Games day in the summer term. Children are also given the opportunity to compete against other schools in dozens of matches and competitions throughout every year.

Whole School PE Plan

“Real PE is a unique, child-centered approach
that transforms how we teach PE to
engage and challenge EVERY child in primary school.”

Active 30:30

At Lindfield Primary Academy we are committed to helping children live a healthy and active lifestyle. The Government Childhood Obesity Plan has set out the ambition for all children to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day, with schools being responsible for delivering an additional 30 minutes of exercise a day on top of their 2 hours of PE sessions each week.

Lindfield has been dedicated to increasing the enjoyment of physical activity and incorporating this within lessons, playtimes, and after school activities.

Have a look at the many physical activities we have been getting up to throughout our school days.
