Physical Heath & Fitness


At Gipsey Bridge Academy, we aim to provide a PE curriculum that pupils only enjoy but also allows them to experience a range of activities that help them to develop their health, fitness and wellbeing.


We intend to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.


It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.


The national curriculum for PE aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

  • are physically active for sustained periods of time

  • engage in competitive sports and activities lead healthy, active lives

What a lovely morning for Inter School Sport ☀️ Well done to the 15 teams competing at our Y5/6 Football Tournament. All matches played in good spirit and most importantly loads of smiley faces!

How good does this Archery setup look at? We are loving having JB Sports back in delivering extra services to our children.

A first swimming lesson this for Class 2! We can't wait until next week!

What a great afternoon the children in Class 1 today. They had a visit from Miss Josie and showed great resilience and completed the dance she had choreographed for them.

Class 1 had a fab PE lesson today , everyone loved their dance lesson . It wasn't easy at first but they were resilient.

What a fantastic morning with GBA football team at the Infinity Academies Trust football tournament. They all played their hearts out with passion and determination. Very proud of you all and the fact we finished 2nd and won the sportsman award is a bonus

Class 3 have been looking at Personal Bests. We discussed what they were and then we did 3 sporting challenges to get our own personal best. We will repeat them over the coming weeks to see if we can beat our personal bests.

Class 1 enjoyed their PE lesson out in the sunshine this afternoon. Some great ball skills being shown. Well done all of you for being resilient.

Such a great feeling to have inter-school sport back up and running. Massive thanks to JB Sports Coaching for organising another brilliant football tournament.

Fantastic cosmic yoga session with Rec and Class 1- a very peaceful, chilled out afternoon.

Class 2 had such a wonderful time during our first swimming lesson! Everybody tried their best and even those that were nervous at the beginning relaxed and had fun. Our swimming teachers were all very proud of us and we can't wait to go back next week!

What a brilliant way to 'motivate' us on our first day back after half term. Reception and Class 1 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves this morning with Mr Motivator!

Class 1 used their throwing skills to try and knock the ball from the tin. It's amazing what you can do with old bakes bean tins.

What a fab PE lessons outside this morning as class 1 developed their throwing skills.

Brilliant dancing on show in Class 2 this afternoon. Lovely to see the children working together when practicing their Salsa steps.
