It is our intent to enable children to:  


  • Develop competence and confidence in a wide range of physical activities
  • Develop interest and enjoyment in P.E. through creativity and imagination activities in games, dance and gymnastics.
  • Be physically active for sustained periods of time and recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise.
  • Acquire, develop and explore Fundamental Movement Skills with increasing control and organisation.
  • Use opportunities which enhance their physical wellbeing, in preparation for leading a fulfilling, active and healthy lifestyle.
  • Develop positive attitudes towards health, hygiene, exercise and fitness, preparing them for a lifelong commitment to healthy, active lifestyles and involvement in sport.
  • Develop the way that they perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities with an appreciation of safe practice.
  • Develop a sense of fair play and sportsmanship, with opportunities for competitive and non-competitive sport.
  • Increase their ability use what they have learnt to improve the quality and control performance to the best of their abilities and know how to evaluate their success.
  • Develop the way they perform their skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities.
  • Develop spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness through competitive and co-operative activities.
  • Further develop cross- curricular links with other subjects, including Speaking and Listening skills.


We strive to establish a high profile of physical education throughout our school and celebrate the sporting achievements of our pupils both in and out of school. We assess pupils learning, analyse and interpret the results to inform future planning and lessons.




We implemented Complete PE to provide a framework for teachers to follow to ensure consistent High Quality Physical Education is taught across the school. 


Through weekly sessions with our class teachers and highly skilled sports coaches, children are provided with opportunities to develop their skills across a broad range of topics. Fundamental movement skills are developed within the EYFS and as children progress through our school their skill-set is developed to provide them with strong foundations for their future sporting lives. We listen to the opinions of our pupils and use this to help incorportae different sports and activities in our games sessions. This ensures children are exposed to a variety of different sports and activities in our games sessions.


We use a variety of teaching styles to engage all types of learners and provide a mixture of whole class teaching, individual, paired and group activities. Teacher’s draw attention to good examples of individual / collaborative performances and sportsmanship as models for oter children and we encourage children to evaluate their own work as well as the work of peers. Within lessons, we give our children the opportunity to both collaborate and to compete with each other using a range of resources. We help children to recognise the importance of personal challenge, and to clebrate their own individual successes.


Our PE Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. In addition, we measure the impact of our P.E curriculum through the following methods:

• A reflection on standards achieved against the planned outcomes- formative assessment through ongoing teacher observations and evaluations during P.E sessions to inform next steps.

• Pupil discussions about their learning.

• Half termly tracking of all children using our Complete P.E summative assessment key skills trackers.

• EYFS teacher judgements against the EYFS Profile and planned outcomes for lessonsobservations and progress highlighted towards reaching the Early Learning Goals for Physical Development - updated half termly.


Children are provided with opportunities for active play and lunchtimes every day. We relay the importance of exercise throughout PE sessions. Children are encouraged to talk about how this exercise makes their body feel and why this happens.


Within Science and PSHE lessons we discuss the importance of a healthy and balanced die  for our physical and mental health.




We ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of sports and actives. All children are provided with the skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active and this has positive impact on their learning in the classroom. Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of exercise. We hope children enjoy and develop a love of sport and physical activity that they pursue outside of school and in future life.



We support our children with SEND by ensuring the development of gross motor and fine motor skills. This  can then be applied throughout the curriculum and utilised in writing and subjects such as maths and art.

We aim to personalise the PE curriculum to enable participation and success for all. This may include adapted, modified or alternative activities that offer ambitious challenge and enable the pupils to make progress; specific support to take part in certain activities or types of movement or careful management of their physical regime to allow for their specific needs.
