Latest Fixtures and competitions

We've got another action packed year with lots of competitions during the academic school year 2022-2023. Over the course of the year pupils will be taking part in a number of different inter and intra school competitions as well as Kent School Games events. See below for Southborough's sports and fixtures.


Term 3 and 4 Fixtures at a Glance

Term 1

This term we are focusing on our ball skills and learning to invade space and outwit an opponent in Key stage 2. We are focusing on a number of different skills and small games in preparation for upcoming competitions in October. Pupils will be learning the importance of passing and moving into space and supporting the player with the ball, both in their hands and at their feet. During the early part of term 1 we will be focusing on Outdoor Adventurous Activities (OAA) where children will be working in teams to problems solve number sums and equations, words and grammar along with anagrams to help develop communication and teamwork whilst developing literacy and numeracy skills.


Key stage 1 will develop their ability to invade space with a ball and we will continue to focus on Multi skills including being able to run with a ball, pass and catch the ball whilst developing an awareness of the ability to change direction in year 2. Year 1 continue to learn how to throw using the correct technique and how to pass and catch a ball from different heights. 


Over the course of the year the pupils follow a longer term curriculum plan allowing them to engage in a range of sports during curriculum time throughout the year. The aim is to give a broad range of sports so every pupil has the opportunity to flourish with their skills and fitness.


Sports are usually taught in advance of upcoming competitions to give pupils the opportunity to develop their skills and at certain times we'll provide a lunchtime preparation club run by the PE lead. Clubs also form part of the training for these competitions and allow us to select teams ready for the events.
