Physical Education Curriculum


This page is all about Physical Education and aims to provide information about:

  • The National Curriculum for Physical Education (PE)
  • Our PE Curriculum

The National Curriculum says …

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

National Curriculum for PE

Our teaching of this subject and the expectations we have of children are underpinned by the Programmes of Study set out in the National Curriculum. You can view the National Curriculum for this subject via the link below:

School Curriculum for Physical Education

In each year group, children will be taught:

  • to develop competence in a broad range of physical activities, including team games, gymnastics, dance and athletics
  • to be physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • how to lead healthy, active lifestyles
  • in Key Stage 2, to learn or develop confidence and competence in swimming (Year 3 and Year 4)
  • to master, with increasing agility and accuracy, basic movements, including running, jumping, throwing, catching in isolation and in combination
  • to develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance
  • to participate in team games, developing tactics for attacking and defending and a sense of team work and fair play
  • to perform sequences of movements, including dance
  • to take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • to evaluate their own performance and progress, and that of others, including their team

The above are taught through discrete PE sessions, including some specialist teaching at different times of the year.

Extra-Curricular Activities

The school offers a range of extra-curricular (after-school) activities at different times of the year for different year groups.

Competitions

The school has joined a number of organisations which organise competitions between schools.  These competitions take place at different times of the year and involve small teams from different year groups.

PE and Sports Premium (Funding)

The school receives about £8,000 per year Sport Premium funding to develop its PE and sports provision.  More information about this can be found here.
