PE and Sport

School Sport

The school is very fortunate in having good outside facilities for P. E. and games. The school also possesses a large playing field, which is used for a range of sports along with the hall in the Upper building. The school is proud to have gained the Activemark Gold for its provision in P.E. and Games. All the children participate in Sports Day on the school field, taking part in many different activities. There will be opportunities for as many children as possible to represent the school at various sporting tournaments and competitions in the local area.

Our Aims

For every child to experience high quality teaching and learning through the PE curriculum. To be active, engaged and challenged in their learning showing progression as well as developing leadership qualities and coaching skills.

Every child should have the opportunity to experience a variety of sports and activities in and outside of the curriculum, also allowing children the chance to compete.

Children at East Garforth Primary Academy will develop a lifelong enjoyment for sport and physical activity as well as an understanding of how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.



It is the school’s aim, in line with National Curriculum requirements, to have all children able to swim 25 metres by the end of their primary years. In Year 4, children who are not at the required level attend weekly swimming lessons at Kippax Baths.

Wow Moments

As well as PE lessons our aim is to provide wow moments for sport from sporting experts.
