Physical Education

Our PE curriculum aims to instil an appreciation for the importance of physical activity, as well as developing a lifelong love of sport. Maintaining healthy lifestyles is also woven through the curriculum offer. Every lesson has opportunities for talking: recapping prior learning, peer teaching, breaking down skills orally- using key words to help embed understanding.

The curriculum is founded on ‘running, jumping, throwing and catching’, ‘competitive games’, ‘flexibility, balance & control’ and ‘dance’. The curriculum progresses year on year through these key teaching areas, meaning skills, knowledge and technical strategy build and develop over time. Our curriculum also develops children’s attitudes to sport, as well as appreciation of all who participate, meaning equalities, fairness, empathy and drive for success are at the heart of everything taught. We aim to build physically and emotionally confident children through our PE curriculum,

We want:

  • Children whose knowledge, skill; and technical ability grow over time
  • Children who can articulate well through speaking;
  • Children who drive for success, while appreciating fairness and equalities in sport
  • PE curriculum teaching to alter children’s long term memory.
