Welcome toFive Lanes Primary SchoolA Caring Place To Learn And Grow

PE - Physical Education

At Five Lanes we encourage all of our children and families to be active. Our children love PE and our aim is to deliver high quality PE to each child, each week, regardless of ability, which children can build upon and be encouraged to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.


We have energetic and enthusiastic staff who teach a range of fundamental skills based on: Dance, Games, Gymnastics, Athletics, OAA and (at KS2) Swimming. To cater for all, we provide opportunities for children to participate in kick boxing, street dance, taekwondo, boccia, fencing, archery, football and a variety of multi sports. We ensure that our children are able to access a variety of competitive opportunities both at intra and inter school level.


We have built partnerships with a number of local clubs and have regular visits and workshops from organisations such as: Leeds Rhinos Foundation, Leeds Taekwondo Centre, Cycle North, Premier Sports, Skipping School and West Leeds SSP. These clubs come into school and work with our children and staff to further develop their sport specific skills. We also have links with Armley Leisure Centre, John Charles Centre for Sport, Leeds Beckett University, West Leeds Activity Centre and Dixons Unity. This allows us to direct children to out of school clubs enabling them to take up a sport or physical activity as a hobby and in addition to this, provides our children with increased opportunities to take part in a wide variety of physical activities whilst in school.


To keep all of our Five Lanes families fit and healthy over the summer holidays, we have worked with our SGO and have a number of challenges that you can complete. These are the weekly personal challenges from June but they are fun, easy to follow and a great way to keep you all active. Alongside these there's also the Leeds Rhinos PE at home challenges which require very little (and sometimes none) equipment and can be done inside or in the garden.
