Banks Road Primary School

We can do it!

Banks Road, Liverpool, Merseyside, L19 8JZ


Physical Education

Banks Road Primary School is committed to helping children achieve excellence in sport throughout the school. We aim to engage all pupils in regular physical activity and allow staff the opportunity to improve their teaching, understanding and confidence of delivery of the P.E. Curriculum. We also plan to increase the amount of competitive participation in sport throughout a range of activities and events. We are committed in using the Premium Funding offered to the school to provide these opportunities through equipment, high quality coaching, travel, competition entry fees.


The P.E. Team in Banks Road is:

Mr. Dade (P.E. Co-ordinator)

Miss Lee (Sports Coach- Tuesday afternoon) 


Pupils in KS1 focus on the development of the fundamental skills, lower Key Stage 2 on the further development of transferable skills and upper Key Stage 2 on applying these learnt skills in a sport specific context.


The new scheme of work, iPEP, is the UK’s first fully interactive PE lesson planner and assessment software that transforms the way schools plan, deliver and assess PE lessons.



So far this year, children from this school have competed in inter-school competitions in:


  • Football 
  • Badminton
  • Futsal
  • Indoor Athletics
  • Swimming Gala
  • Cross Country



Please see the PE Tournaments section for the latest results.


After School Clubs include:

Hockey on a Tuesday with Miss Lee

Year 3/4 Football on a Wednesday with Mr Evans

Year 5/6 Football on a Thursday with Mr Dade


More trials and a wider range of clubs will be occurring throughout the year. Keep checking back to make sure you are up to date.
