PE Curriculum



Through PE we aim to encourage a lifetime love of sport and keeping fit. Our PE and sport aspires to build determination, passion, respect, honesty, self-belief and teamwork.

These values will:

  • Help children to understand the importance of health and well-being.
  • Allow children to develop healthy lifestyles.
  • Provide a broad range of high quality opportunities and outcomes for all.
  • Develop links with other schools and organisations in the community.
  • Promote active participation and competition at all levels.
  • Encourage children to continue their interest in fitness and sport into secondary and beyond.

PE Rationale

Teaching and Learning

In the Reception Class opportunities will be provided for children to be active and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement through moving and handling activities which involve the use of a range of equipment and involve different spatial experiences.

Pupils in both KS1 and KS2 will engage in lessons of high quality PE each week. In KS1 the curriculum focuses on fundamental movement skills to develop agility, balance and co-ordination. Curriculum content includes ball skills and team games, gymnastic and dance activities. At KS2 pupils will continue to apply and develop a range of skills and units of work which include a range of invasion, net/wall, and fielding and striking games, gymnastics, dance, athletics and swimming. Children’s experiences will also be enriched through opportunities for outdoor and adventurous activities. A range of resources will be used to support progression across the curriculum including: The PE Hub Scheme, and specialist coaching sessions for different sports.


The School uses the principle of STEP for adjusting lesson activities for differentiation. Some children with particular needs may require different activities, for example, with a particular focus on fine motor skills if hand to eye coordination is a challenge.

S = change the space available

T = change the time allowed

E = change the equipment, e.g. softer or larger balls, different sized bats, etc…

P = change the people, e.g. size of the groups

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and British Values

Developing a positive attitude generally is not simply about celebrating sporting success and learning to lose well; but also encouraging children always to do their very best regardless of their ability; praising progress and achievement in a way that does not cause fear or upset for lack of performance or failure; and treating team mates, opponents and referees with respect. Essentially, using every opportunity to maintain and raise self-esteem all round.
