PadihamPrimary School


At Padiham Primary School we recognise the value of PE and it is an integral part of our curriculum. We follow the Lancashire curriculum using the PE Passport app to build a two year cycle. Within our PE lessons children develop the knowledge, skills and competence to excel in a broad range of sports and physical activities.  

Take a look at our two year cycle curriculum map below:

P.E is taught as an area of learning in its own right, as well as being integrated where possible with other curriculum areas. It is taught at a minimum of one PE session a week. The key knowledge and skills are built upon throughout each year group and are developed systematically, with the programme of study for each year group building on previous learning. Knowledge and skills are informed and linked to enable achievement of key stage end points, as informed by the 2014 National Curriculum. 

We celebrate many sports at Padiham Primary School and we want to provide as many memorable opportunities as possible. We invite professional coaches into lessons from out of school throughout the year including gymnastic, rugby, cricket and dance coaches as well the team from Pennine Active to teach children from Reception to Year 6 the skills to ride a bike and keep themselves safe on the roads. 

Bikeability Year 4 - Our Year 4 children completed the level 2 course and had a fantastic time.

We attend many interschool competitions. Here are some pictures of events we have attended so far this year.

Keeping healthy is very important and as your teachers we want to inspire you to be active. There are many simple, fun and free ways that you can keep active and here are some of the ways PPS staff stay active and healthy. What could you do this week?
