Pupils have full access to the Physical Education National Curriculum which is differentiated to meet pupils’ learning needs and styles.  Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities before, during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being. They will have a minimum of two hours curriculum PE time a week.

The Physical Education curriculum is designed to be challenging, appropriate to each pupil’s stage of development.

Pupils will:

Have fun and experience success in sport

Have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development

Secure and build on a range of skills

Develop good sporting attitude

Understand basic rules

Experience positive competition

Learn in a safe environment

Have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.


The impact of the PE curriculum is that the children will meet their age-appropriate skills in Physical Education and be able to transfer these skills into other sports and everyday activities. We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport and promote team building, physical and mental health and boost confidence and resilience. As a result of our physical education curriculum we are extremely proud to have been awarded the highest award available - Platinum in the School Games Mark recognising the high standard of our curriculum offer.
