Physical education is about providing children with a movement foundation for lifelong participation in physical activity, enabling them to become competent and confident physical movers. All children are entitled to benefit from the enjoyment of a broad and balanced PE curriculum that will extend their knowledge, physical skills and attitudes in a positive manner irrespective of race, gender, or level of ability.


Our objective is to put children at the heart of PE learning by:

  • Supporting learning PE in the same way as other curriculum subjects
  • Focusing on the development of physical literacy which enables children to grow in self-realisation, self-confidence and positive self-esteem.
  • Recognising a child’s diverse needs (physical, cognitive, social, creative, health and emotional) as the focus of learning in P.E.
  • Ensuring that learning experiences build on children’s previous achievements so that they can make progress according to their abilities and learn to adapt to changing circumstances.
  • Providing children with access to a broad range of movement contexts and resources both indoors and outdoors and individually and with others that enable them to engage in purposeful, competitive and co-operative physical activities in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Before swimming lessons 11 children could swim 25m - 34% of cohort

After swimming lessons 29 children could swim 25m - 91% of cohort


Year 4 children who can use a range of strokes effectively:

Children from Level 3 upwards who could display a range of stokes - 32 children = 100% of cohort
