Sport and Physical Education at Denbigh Primary School

Physical Education at Denbigh Primary School sets the highest expectations of all pupils. We are dedicated to providing an inclusive high quality P.E. programme to develop physical literacy. Our competitive sport programme is embedded in the school culture and ethos promoting lifelong success.


The sports on offer at Denbigh Primary School include football, tag rugby, tennis, hockey, athletics, badminton, netball, cricket, basketball, boccia, tri golf, handball, dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, rounders, orienteering, table tennis, tchoukball, boxing, cycling, volleyball, new age kurling, trampoline gymnastics, gymnastics, and dance. Pupils also experience swimming during year 4 and year 6. We believe that there is a sport for every pupil and therefore our curriculum also includes alternate and modified sports. There are also excellent fitness opportunities which the whole school participates in daily. All pupils in KS2 have to opportunity to develop leadership skills during the whole school fitness. Denbigh Primary School provides a wide-range of sports enrichment activities that are open to pupils of all abilities enabling greater physical literacy development.

We recognise that sport is a catalyst for personal development and therefore we have embedded competitive sport into the culture and ethos of the school. Our programme of competitive sport is linked to the house system. Competitions take place on a regular basis usually during lunchtime.

Our school sports committee is made up of 16 pupils. The committee consists of house sports captains and vice captains in charge of intra-house competitions with roles ranging from getting a team together to taking on a role of leadership and officiating during the competitions. Our captains are role models and are the ‘voice’ in determining extracurricular activities on offer. We also have Change4Life Champions and Bronze Young Ambassadors to inspire pupils to participate in physical activity while promoting the Olympic and Paralympics values.


Students will be assessed in P.E.  to ensure the different contexts our children experience enhance cognitive, creative, physical, health & wellbeing and social skills. Each of these assessment domains will be assessed using the descriptors evolving, achieving or outstanding.


Sport is celebrated during our National Sports Week and our annual sports awards presentation.



"Going out on fixtures have helped me become more confident and less shy when communicating with people, I have gained more experience in dance which is something I want to do in high school and in my future. I love experiencing events with my friends and succeeding as a team." - Rabia, Year 6
"When I go to fixtures I learn more about sports and that is helpful because I learn about something I enjoy and I feel part of a team." - Umar, Year 4
Forest School
"Forest school has helped me work with others. I struggle in class and this helps me. I have made friends and people are friendly." - Safa, Year 4
"We learn about trees and creatures and there are no creatures in the classroom
It's more enjoyable because we are outside. The best thing is making things and visiting the forest all the time." - Afsa, Year 3
