Physical Education

Subject Leader - Mrs Price & Mrs Jones

Physical Education is a vital component in the range of experiences offered to children at High Legh. This importance is reflected in the commitment to provide all children, in each year group, with at least two hours of Physical Education per week.

Curriculum Progression

Dance specific progression






At High Legh Primary School, we believe that opportunities for children to participate in and enjoy a variety of extra-curricular activities is very important. In a sporting context the school has decided to organise these into two discrete sections.

  1. i) Participation Sport - In these activities we will arrange a variety of opportunities in order to ensure that all children can participate in the sports that they wish to experience.
  2. ii) Success Sport - In these activities we will select the children on ability. The objective being for the school to be successful in competitive sport.

The school will endeavour to provide a balance of these two types of extra-curricular activities. Naturally, all children will have equal access to all the activities offered. 


Alternate years, Year 5&6 children take part in an Outdoor and Adventure week at Boreatton Park in Shropshire, hosted by PGL, .


As a school, we are part of the Lymm cluster of schools, we take part in the Warrington School games and use some of our Government funding money to pay for our membership to Livewire.
