At Northway, the children have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sporting activities. From Reception to Year 6, pupils take part in a variety of activities that are aimed to develop and improve their skills in both team events and individual sports. Whether it be swimming, hockey or gymnastics, children of all ages get the opportunity to learn new skills, develop competitive spirit and enhance vital teambuilding skills.


The Government has provided all schools with funding to improve Physical Education and sport in primary schools and, with our funding, we have been able to develop a partnership with our local high school. Through this, staff have been provided with further training to develop their curriculum knowledge in line with the National Curriculum.

The school are also continuing to update the equipment and resources available, including new sports kits for our teams competing in competitions.

Throughout the year, children are given the opportunities to take part in a range of extracurricular activities, ranging  from football clubs to dance groups. Children are also encouraged to join teams and get involved in clubs which compete against other primary schools, such as the football team who take part in various competitions. Furthermore, Northway pupils regularly attend MADCOS events at other schools, such as the ‘multi-skills’ and orienteering days at the local high school. As a school we endeavour to provide all children with the opportunity to learn and develop new skills so that their confidence and attitude towards Physical Education improves along with their skills.
