Welcome to the Healey JIN School Sports Section


All 3 are similar in that they all include physical movement but there are important differences as outlined below:


Physical Education  (P.E.) is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school curriculum timetable time and which is delivered to all pupils ( Nursery, Early Years, Key Stages 1 & 2). This is involves moving to learning to move ( i.e. becoming more physically competent) and moving to learn e.g. learning through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond physical activity such as co-operating with others). The context of the learning is physical activity, with children experiencing a braod range of activities, including sport and dance.


For further information about our P.E. Curriculum please click on the Curriculum Tab and then choose P.E.


 School sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. the extended curriculum) within school settings. Again, the context of the learning is physical activity. The aim of the sports programme is to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place in P.E. It also forms a vital link with " community sport and activity."


Physical Activity is the broad term that describes bodily movement, posture and balance. All require energy. It includes all form of P.E., sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity, outdoor & adventurous activities. active travel (e.g. walking, cycling and routine habitual activities such as using the stairs, homework & gardening).

Healey JIN School is a member of the North Kirklees School Games Partnership. Membership provides our pupils to attend a variety of sports which can be competitive (pathway competition), inclusive ( support SEN&D pupils & reluctant children) as well as sporting festivals to encourage pupils to be more active. The majority of events take place at Batley Sports & Tennis Centre on a Tuesday afternoon.



The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.

What are the key criteria?

Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics...

  • Participation - how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
  • Competition - how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
  • Workforce - how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
  • Clubs - how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?https://www.yourschoolgames.com/how-it-works/school-games-mark/



Every September, at the start of the academic year, the School Games Award starts again from scratch. Healey JIN School was on course to achieve a third School Games Award when Covid_19 pandemic closed all schools.

As a result, The School Games have announced that we will retain our award for the 2019_20 academic year.
