PE Curriculum


Our intent is to improve and increase the quality and quantity of Physical Literacy and Education for pupils, to show how Physical Education can enhance pupils’ attainment and achievement and to create pathways for them to continue to be active beyond school. We will be developing our links to outside agencies and clubs which will help to generate positive interaction in the community as our school community grows.

We strive for the delivery of the teaching & learning of PE to always be High Quality, innovative and inspiring in order to promote participation, progress and performance. ‘High quality PE and school sport produces young people with the skills, understanding, desire and commitment to continue to improve and achieve in a range of PE, sport and health-enhancing physical activities in line with their abilities’ (DCMS Learning through PE & Sport).



A high quality PE Curriculum will develop physical Literacy and will allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect.  The curriculum will also contribute to the children’s development of other important cognitive skills such as decision making and analysis and social skills such as teamwork and communication.


Teachers and subject leaders have strong subject knowledge and understanding of skills shared across the whole school.

Physical Literacy Pedagogy is clearly understood by staff. This will be achieved by high quality C.P.D. Specialist Support from outside organisations and exchange of good practice.

Children are given the opportunity to work individually, in peer groups to develop the key Skills they have been learning.

Teachers use live, daily planning assessment and feedback to systematically identify and address skill and developmental gaps before teaching the next steps.

The content of learning environments and equipment will be consistent in promoting Physical Education but relevant to the age and stage the children are at.



Summative assessment will show progression in the pupils skills and physical Literacy.

Children will enjoy being physically active and will understand why it is important to lead an healthy and active lifestyle.

Children will show confidence in their movement skills and working with others.

Children will show an ability to work with others with confidence and compassion.

Pupils will show confidence in trying new activities showing good team work and communication skills.

We as a staff are committed to make sure that children are ready for the next stage of their education.
