PE and Sports

At Northfield, we firmly believe that physical activity provides a vast range of benefits to all of our children. It’s not only a subject that will get their heart’s racing; it also educates them on how to be healthy, happy and hardworking. We aspire to have healthy bodies, minds and lifestyles. Take a look at our PE vision for more about the ethos of PE and sports in our school.


Throughout the year, we will be playing in many tournaments against local schools. We also have our annual inter-house competitions: football, cross country, tri-golf, table tennis, basketball, boccia, tennis and many more inter-house activities that are organised by our fantastic Playground Buddies and Bronze Young Ambassadors. Our Bronze Young Ambassadors will be bringing you brilliant reports to tell you all about the fantastic sporting accomplishments we achieve. So, watch this space for updates on our super sporting success! Take a look at our ‘Mini Leaders’ folder for all the details.


At present, the benefits of exercise are extremely important in keeping both our bodies and our minds healthy. Please look at the ‘Keeping healthy at Northfield’ and ‘The benefits of exercise’ documents for more ideas on how to keep your minds and bodies healthy. If your child is interested in joining a sports club in and around Dronfield, take a look at our ‘Sports clubs in and around Dronfield’ for some inspiration.


We aspire to motivate families to spend time exercising together and creating habits that become a continued practice. For some fun activity ideas, which can be completed at home, please look at the ‘Derbyshire School Games’ page. We would love to see our Northfield families in action – tweet us your photos using #northfieldjun
