Curriculum - PE



PE Overview

We aim to provide all children with good quality Physical Education to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. We improve upon the basic skills taught in Key Stage 1 with a continuation of Dance, Gym and Athletics. The curriculum is extended to include new initiatives through Games such as: Quicksticks, Volleyball, Tennis, Football, Netball, Cricket and Rounders.


From 2014 all schools were provided with Sport Funding provided by the Government. We have utilised some of this funding to broaden our sports and offer a range of extra curricular sporting clubs.


In Years 4 and 6 all children are given the opportunity to go on a residential visit for outdoor activities.


All children (Reception to Y6) receive swimming lessons at our own Swimming pool and we strive for all children to be able to swim at least 25 metres before they leave Key Stage 2.


We are very keen to provide children with a range of different activities outside of the curriculum to promote and develop healthy lifestyles. We have initiatives such as Cool Kids underway and Play leaders (Y6 pupils) trained to encourage play at lunchtimes.
