Physical Education


PE and leading a healthy lifestyle is a hugely important part of our school. Staff will have a clear understanding of the National Curriculum, through regular CPD with expert sports coaches.

Our PE curriculum will enhance the skills and knowledge of all children and be accessible to all. It will maximise the development of every child’s ability and achievement in all areas of PE and develop fundamental movement within every lesson.

All children will be active throughout their 2-hour PE lesson, where they will learn the importance of physical activity and keeping healthy. They will improve their own health, well-being and personal skills linked to the Olympic and School Sports Values such as the resilience to preserve. They will have the opportunity to grow an understanding of working together and overcome challenges in readiness for life.  

They will participate in and learn about how to use and apply this knowledge to impact upon their own physical activity, participation and healthy lifestyle.  

Swimming and water safety will be taught throughout the school and extra opportunities will be taken to continue to improve 25m swimming percentage.
