"In Key Stage 1 pupils should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations."
"In Key Stage 2 pupils should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success."

At Blakehill our pupils are provided with opportunities to compete within their PE lessons, at after school clubs and at competitions against other schools from our Local Area Partnership and across Bradford.
As part of our link with Sports UK, each year group in school takes part in a competition against children from 8 other Primary schools in our LAP. The children prepare for these competitions in their PE time and with a dedicated after school club during that half term.
Children across Key Stage 2 are also given the opportunity to represent Blakehill at the following competitions held by Sports UK for more able pupils from 12 schools across the Local Area Partnership:
- Cross Country
- Tag Rugby
In addition to this Blakehill have also started to compete in the School Games competitions held at Hanson Academy where our pupils are able to compete against pupils from schools outside of our Local Area Partnership.
