P.E and Sport Vision
At Broadlea Primary School, our aim is to promote a healthy, active lifestyle as well as encouraging a lifelong participation in sport. P.E. and sport contributes significantly to the development of children’s lives at Broadlea, with physical activity playing an important role in building children’s social, teamwork and leadership skills - attributes that will be carried forward with them to adult life.
Fun, active and engaging lessons are the three key aspects of the P.E. curriculum at Broadlea. Over the course of the year, children will take part in a range of different activities and sports, including less traditional sports such as dodgeball and golf. P.E. staff actively promote physical activity opportunities outside of schools in the hope of promoting a lifelong interest and participation in sport. The school’s P.E teachers aim to challenge pupils during lessons as well as providing opportunities for children to develop their leadership skills.
At Broadlea, we offer pupils an extensive program of after-school sports club throughout the year. Our provision features traditional clubs, arranged in co-ordination with the Isle of Wight’s Primary School Sports Program, as well as less traditional recreational and action sports such as skateboarding. Clubs are arranged to provide children with the opportunity to try new sports for the first time.
These sports and physical activities typically feature within our after-school club program across the year: Tag Rugby; Football; Indoor Athletics; Cross Country; Skateboarding; Dance; Gymnastics; Basketball; Netball; Fitness; C4L Club; Athletics; Cricket; Rounders; Handball
In addition to our after-school sports club program, the school also offers children the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports fixtures throughout the academic year. We provide a range of activities, with the hope that every child will represent the school in a sports fixture by the time they leave.
The school enters competitive fixtures organised by the Island’s School Games Organisers, such as football and cricket league and cup competitions. Local cluster competitions for sports such as tag rugby and basketball lead on to the Island Finals, where teams then compete for a place to represent the Isle of Wight at the Hampshire Games. In addition to these competitions, the school enters sporting festivals and arranges friendly matches for different sports across year.
During local cluster competitions, several teams are entered to give as many children as possible the chance to represent the school. We are fortunate to have excellent sport facilities at Broadlea with a large field, playground and hall. This has enabled us to host several competitions for other schools over the course of the year, including: Quad Kids athletics, tag rugby, sitting volleyball and triathlon competitions. Broadlea also hosts mini football, cricket and netball tournaments.

Each year at school children in Year 4, 5 and 6 are given the opportunity to become a Sports Leader and to be part of the school’s Sports Council.
To apply, the children complete an application form explaining why they think they would be a good candidate for the role. Our Sports Leaders play an active role school P.E and sport. They organise and run sports competitions for local schools. Over the past few years this has included: Year 2 Athletics, Year 3/4 Sitting Volleyball, Year 5/6 Sitting Volleyball and KS2 Triathlon competitions.
Sports Leaders also help to manage our U-7 football team as well as refereeing football matches. Children are given training for these events to help to prepare them. Other roles include helping to run assemblies and choosing winners for our ‘Shift It’ competitions.
The Sports Council meet half-termly to discuss improvements to school sport. Being a Sports Leader helps to develop leadership skills and gives children an important responsibility within school life. It also gives children the opportunity to experience what a potential job in the sports industry might be like and is a role that may be mentioned on a future university application form!
