Curriculum Intent

At Broadmead, we aim to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport.

Our school values, along with our sporting values are embedded within our P.E. lessons, through which we aim to nurture and develop confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. Through conversations and listening to our children we will provide them with a range of activities and clubs.

We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes and achievements.

We strive to educate both our children and our families to develop a greater understanding on how to live a healthy lifestyle and make healthy choices.

We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies, and will continue to support our children’s wellbeing. We have strong links with local clubs and partnerships within our community and surrounding area.

We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows children to have the skills and mindset to leave our school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at middle school and beyond.


We will have lots of exciting festivals to participate in this year. We will update our table when we have our new dates.

Sports Premium

As with every Primary School in the country, Broadmead Lower School has been provided with additional funding of £16,960 a year to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport in our school.

We used part of this money for membership to the Redborne Sports Partnership, through which our children are invited to regular out of school tournaments. Staff also have access to many courses to improve their subject knowledge and skills and our children also benefit from training such as our Young Sport Leaders Training.
