At Moorside Primary we participate in many sporting activities many of which are possible by money awarded through the Sports Premium Allocation Fund. Full details of our Sports Premium allocation can be found on our school website.
‘A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.’

Physical Education at Moorside Primary School.
As written in our mission statement, here at Moorside Primary School we strive to work together to inspire confidence, develop resilience and promote democracy amongst our pupils and the wider community. These skills we believe are fundamental in achieving a healthy, fit, and competently skilled lifestyle.
Each week pupils will take part in P.E sessions to develop their core skills across a range of sports.
These skills include dance, gymnastics, athletics, multiskills, swimming and games.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time
- Engage in competitive sports and activities
- Lead healthy, active lives.
At our school we thoroughly enjoy providing our pupils with learning opportunities that are new and challenging as well as allowing them to experience and achieve in activities beyond their everyday physical education sessions. We have 3 members of staff trained in Forest Schools at Level 2. This enables us to deliver a wide range of adventurous activities for children, young people and staff teams to foster a sense of team working, self-exploration and personal development. We use our natural outdoor woodland area to offer the children an insight into the Forest School ethos. This approach to outdoor learning encourages children to become independent, use their imagining, take appropriate risks within boundaries and initiate learning for themselves.
Autumn Term Physical Education at Moorside
Butterfly and Rabbit class attended a Physical Literacy Festival this week. We listened to a story and then applied different skills through physical activities.
Owl and Squirrel classes have participated in Sports hall athletics. They have had great fun and worked really hard!
Autumn term one we have completed Outdoor and Adventurous activities during P.E. We have had to work as a team and use good communication skills in order for us to complete the given task.
This year we have introduced “Active 30” into our school day. Every day we are active for 30 minutes. We rotate on a 4 week cycle completing different activities each week. Take a look at some of the fun we have been having.
