Sport is central to achievement and effort is encouraged through team and individual games at school and through inter-school competitions and tournaments.
Here is our new PE whole school curriculum overview:
We believe that sport helps to build confidence and promotes our school values of excellence. In addition to this, KS2 children have swimming lessons. Specialist instructors take weekly swimming lessons at Stockbridge Village Leisure Centre.
We offer a range of sports and encourage a life-long positive attitude towards healthy living and sport. As a school, through the Knowsley Schools Sports Partnership, pupils from Roby Park are able to attend and compete in a wide range of sporting competitions against other local schools. School offers a wide range of extra-curricular clubs each half term which equip our children with the skills to compete and excel in sporting competitions.
Pupils are encouraged to try a wide range of outward-bound activities during the Year 6 residential school trips. These can include climbing, abseiling, high ropes courses, challenge courses, raft building and archery.
We are privileged to have our own Sports Coach here at Roby Park who provides CPD support, character mentoring and mindfulness sessions, lunchtime supervision and extra-curricular clubs.
We have invested heavily into scooters through Scoot Fit. Our Scoot Fit school exercise and active travel programme is sustainable and will keep your children active and healthy. Find out more about Scoot Fit here.
We are fortunate enough to have secured significant funding from Sport England to invest into sports equipment which would supplement our curriculum and enable us to offer a wider range of extra-curricular clubs which include the involvement of parents.
To see how we are spending the DfE PE Premium, please look at our Sports Plan.

Y2 really enjoyed their swimming lesson with @ELITE_Swim_UK this week. They had the chance to learn & develop their skills & technique when swimming on their front & backs. The progress they have made is fantastic. They should be very proud with what they have accomplished. #RPPE1
This week in swimming, the children have been focusing on their butterfly technique and incorporating their arms and legs into the movement.1
Each week our confidence is growing in the water and our smiles say it all! Today we worked on moving around the pool with floats, practised floating on our backs and also had a go at breast stroke and backstroke too! You make us very proud!1
In our @ELITE_Swim_UK swimming lesson today, we worked to begin to swim front crawl across the pool. We also practiced the life-saving skill of floating on our backs, both with a float and in the star shape with no float. Year 3 are gaining so much confidence! #RPPE3
Everyday @RobyParkSchool is memorable but in a pool on the playground is unforgettable. Thanks to @ELITE_Swim_UK Y2 built confidence in the water by floating on their backs and putting their faces in the water. They played lots of games and had fun!5
WOW! What a great first swimming lesson we had today!
