Physical Education


As a school we work tirelessly to deliver exciting and innovative PE that allows pupils to be physically active, flourish in a broad range of physical activities and engage in competitive sports in a safe and challenging environment.

Our intent for PE is for children to:

Thoroughly enjoy being physically active and have the confidence to participate in different sports

Practise skills in a range of activities and to have the highest of expectations of themselves when performing these individually, in small groups and within a team

Develop high levels of physical fitness through being active for sustained periods of time

Understand the important of leading a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and healthy nutrition

Be advocates of PE and confidently talk about their achievements


We implement this by:

Using an effective Long Term Plan for teachers to ensure pupils have access to broad range of physical activities

Creative and innovative planning that ensures consistency in teaching throughout school and high expectations for all

Investing in the School Sports Partnership to allow all pupils to participate in competitions with local schools

Investing in highly specialist PE teachers to work alongside teachers, ensuring teacher remain up-skilled by providing them with a wealth of fun and innovative teaching ideas

Providing opportunities for sporting professionals to visit the pupils and inspire them by sharing their achievements

Deploying Sports Leaders promoting positive attitudes towards PE and motivating their peers with sports


The impact of our PE approach is that children:

Make outstanding progress in PE and enjoy participating in sport

Are physically active

Understand the importance of exercise and a healthy lifestyle

Have increased confidence in a range of sports

Take up a variety of sports. This is enabled by the nurture and relationships between staff and children.
