Physical Education

At Lowfield we recognise the value of PE in promoting healthy lifestyles. All classes from Y1 to Y6 are timetabled for two one hour sessions of PE each week; one session focuses on competitive games style activities such as football, basketball, cricket etc. and the other session focuses on gymnastics, athletics and dance activities.


Swimming lessons are part of the Y4 curriculum and take place currently at Heely swimming baths. The pupils walk to and from this local facility as part of our commitment to healthy lifestyles. We have a range of sports clubs, such as football, basketball etc. which operate at both lunchtimes and after school – these are all free to our pupils to encourage greater participation.


We are part of the Forge Sports Partnership, this gives our pupils access to a wider range of sports activities at our local secondary schools.

Year 5/6 Sportshall Athletics

Our Y5 and Y6 Athletics team took part in their first competition of the year in November at the School Games Athletics competition at The English Institute of Sport. Each child represented fantastic Teamwork, Passion and Determination throughout. Well done team!


Year 2 Athletics

Our Y2 Athletics Team took part in their first ever Athletics event on the 24th November 2017 down at The English Institute of Sport, showing incredible Passion, Determination and Self-Belief throughout which earned them 2nd place in the final standings. Congratulations!

Basketball Competition

Children in Year 5 were given an opportunity to represent the school in a HotShotz Basketball Competition at All Saints Secondary School. After starting off with a few nerves and playing with Self-Belief, Determination and Passion, the team quickly gelled together and earned themselves 2 losses and 2 victories, with one victory coming against the eventual finalist. Fantastic achievement Team!

Lads and Dad's Football

"One of the highlights of my week is the hour I spend playing football as part of the Lowfield School Community Football initiative. The initiative encourages participation from the wider community in the life of the school by arranging a weekly football match involving Lowfield teachers, pupils and parents. We play on a first class, all weather pitch at the U MIX centre which enables everyone to hone their skills.


Although the football is competitive, sometimes fierce it is always played in good spirits and behaviour is of the highest standard.


It is a great hour, filled with excitement and no little skill.


I come away from playing often tired and aching but immensely satisfied".

Judo Experience

Every class in school got to have a sample lesson in Judo during the Spring term.  We all worked with a coach to learn some different judo moves and techniques.  It was great fun for everyone even children as young as foundation.

Sports Competitions

Key Stage 2 Street Dance

Foundation/Key Stage 1 Sports Day

The sun shone down on us for our afternoon when we had Sports day for Foundation and Key Stage 1 children and their families.  The children showed team spirit, determination and resilience when competing in all the different events and races.  They took part in penalty shoot outs, running races balancing, lime and spoon race, welly wanging, dancing to name a few.  Parents came to watch and cheer along the children.  The event went even smoother as the Key Stage 2 children were on hand to help model the races and help the younger children out.

Lowfield Olympics

To coincide with the 2016 Rio Olympics Lowfield had its own day of celebration. We held an opening ceremony followed by each class in school participating in a variety of different events.  It was a great deal of fun.

Swimming Gala

In June, the Y4 children did themselves proud as they took part in our school's first ever swimming gala.  This is also the first time the school swimming service has been involved in an event like this and has decided to incorporate galas into their swimming programmes in the future. 
Thanks to all those parents who walked down with us to cheer the children on.  This was an emotional occasion because each child tried their best and everyone encouraged each other.  Effort and personal achievement were acknowledged throughout.

School Games

On Wednesday 18th May our Y2 pupils took part in a Tri-golf competition led by Mr Cotton and Mr Goddard in our school hall.  The competition followed the School Games format, with 4 events chosen to develop golf skills.  The pupils competed against each other in their house teams and the winning house was ...LOXLEY!!


All of the children had a great time and they demonstarted the school games values of teamwork and determination to mkae the event a big success.  Special thanks also go to the Young Sports Leaders from Y5 who helped to run the event and offered amazing support and advice.  Well done!!


Obstacle Fun

F2 had to travel in a variety of different ways when we set up an obstacle course for them.  They had great fun balancing, sliding in and out, crawling, jumping and stretching.

Play Leaders

We have successfully trained some Year 5 children to become play leaders.  These children will be helping in KS1 playground twice a week to begin with to play games with the children and lead sport games at morning break.  We then hope to then train more children to work at both playtimes and lunchtimes with the younger children in school.

EIS Visit

On 13th November 2014, a group of 20 pupils took part in the Sport Hall Athletics competition at the English Institute of Sport in Don Vally.  The competition was fierce but Lowfield finished in a very respectable 5th position.  Well done to all those involved!
