We have recently taken part in a whole school training day (May 2018) in how to deliver the Real PE programme. This is a programme that we are very excited to begin delivering in one of our 2 hours of timetabled PE each week. Click the link below to read more.






 PE Partner use a Spiral Curriculum approach to education, that introduces key concepts to students at a young age and covers these repeatedly, with increasing degrees of complexity. For more information about this see the pdf. link below.

Spiral PE Framework




Here is a link to the School Sports Partnership website for our school, where you can find information about upcoming competitions and clubs affiliated with Asquith Primary.





We are proud to be working alongside Premier League Primary Stars. This year (17/18) we will be working closely with coaches to plan and deliver fun and engaging PE activities to help pupils develop their skills in everything from balance and coordination to athletics and throwing skills. In addition to this, challenging topics such as resilience, diversity and self-esteem, will be brought to life by personal insights from children and top figures of the sporting world.

We were lucky enough to be visited by Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock, who kindly answered all of our questions about his inspirations, work ethic and hobbies outside of football.

30/30 Wristband challenge


Asquith Primary are excited to introduce the 30:30 Wristband Challenge!

This is an initiative that has been developed by the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University, to increase the amount of physical activity (PA) that primary-age children currently do. The challenge is to be physically active enough to earn a certificate, a bronze, a silver and a gold wristband.

This is currently being trialled with KS2, please click the links below for more information.

We are incredibly proud to be awarded a gold School Games Award for the second consecutive year. A huge part of winning these awards is due to our level of participation in physical activity. In addition to the two hours of PE each week and a weekly mile run, we also take part in competitions and clubs both in and out of school. This is something we are very proud of!

For the past three years, as part of a whole school effort, each class has taken part in a weekly 1 mile run.

The benefits resulting from this have been fantastic! Not only has it been evident that children have been getting fitter, and therefore healthier, but it is also clear that they are becoming more confident, with children applying their new found determination to their work ethic in the classroom. We are keen to continue running at least once a week and ask you to please ensure that your child has appropriate footwear in school so that they are able to take part.


Sports at Asquith

Netball season is here!

Chloe WETHERILL (wetherillc) on: Sports at Asquith

Netball letters have gone out to pupils in Y5 and Y6 for the afterschool sessions starting next week. Historically, Asquith have been consistently successful in the MSSA annual netball tournament and we are getting ready early for another good go at the trophy. With last years second place still fresh in our minds we are eager to get practising and see what 2019 brings.

Netball practise will be on Tuesdays from 3:30 - 4:15 and will run from 05/03 to 07/05 with the netball tournament falling on that week on Thursday 9th May.

We are excied to be able to invite our year 5 and 6 children to come to a 'come and try' Netball event that will be held at Bruntcliffe High School on Tuesday 27th November 3:45 - 5:40. 

We have been given the opportunity to invite pupils from Year 5/6 to a ‘come and try’ Netball event at Bruntcliffe High School, and have decided take this opportunity to target children who have shown a particular aptitude for competitive sports in PE lessons. Netball club will be starting after Christmas in preparation for tournaments in the Summer term - we are hoping to inspire our future Netball team!

Silver in the netball tournament

Chloe WETHERILL (wetherillc) on: Sports at Asquith

Staff and parents were incredibly proud after watching a fantastic performance from the Y5/6 netball team! They won every game in the first round of the tournament, and went straight to the final where they played an equally brilliant Churwell side. Great effort from some very talented and dedicated students!
