We follow a high quality Physical Education curriculum that develops children’s knowledge, skills and competence, helping every child to achieve their personal best in a broad range of sport and physical activities. We aim for all children to cultivate healthy habits and a love for sports, leading to active, happy lives.
Pupils participate in two PE lessons per week, covering two sporting disciplines every half-term. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities.
In KS1, pupils will develop fundamental movement skills and extend their agility, balance and coordination. They will engage in competitive and cooperative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
In KS2, pupils continue to develop a broader range of skills, learning how to apply them in different ways. Pupils will gain a greater understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports, by evaluating and recognising their own success.
Children will also participate in workshops covering a variety of sports throughout the year. For example, archery, trigolf, skipping and hulahooping, giving children the chance to try something new and improve their fitness. As well as this, children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. With our inclusive approach, we work to promote both our pupils’ physical development and their mental wellbeing.
Sports leaders also lead lunchtime zones to raise the profile of sport and physical activity. At the beginning of break every day, children will participate in the “Daily Mile” to meet the government target of all children being active for at least 1 hour a day.
The children in KS1 and KS2 have the opportunity to attend a variety of clubs across the year, having the opportunity to try a wide range of sports! This year we have tried dance, dodgeball, lacrosse, multisports, gymnastics and badminton!
Key Stage 1
Pupils develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They are able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations. Pupils are taught to:
Key Stage 2
Pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

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. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
