Our vision aims to provide all children with a broad, high quality and relevant physical education. 

Through engaging pupils in a high quality physical education, providing opportunities to develop and engage with different challenges to enhance physical, emotional and social development, pupils are able to embed the life long value of sportsmanship within a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. 

Our curriculum ensures skills are developed through the following areas: dance, invasion games, gymnastics, outdoor activity, swimming, athletics, net and wall games and striking and fielding games. 

We aim to teach this through our balance of individual, team, co-operative, competitive and creative activities that are adapted for individual pupils’ needs and abilities. The PE curriculum progressively builds key knowledge, skills and techniques which, provides stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning opportunities for pupils.

All children receive two hours of physical education a week. These lessons are delivered by our P.E. Lead Mr Thurtle who has expert subject knowledge.

The areas covered in the PE curriculum for Key Stage 1 focus on the development of fundamental movements through multi-skill lessons. Throughout the lessons the children are set individual and group tasks in order to develop additional skills such as team work, communication and leadership.

These skills are then developed in more specific topics throughout Key Stage 2. Here the children have the chance to revisit and build on the knowledge, skills and techniques acquired in the previous key stage and use them across a large variety of sports.

Throughout the curriculum, children are challenged to think, create and solve problems whilst working as a team and individually within competitive and non-competitive environments. This enables children to develop and experience different roles within a team and recognise the importance of each role.
