Physical Education (PE)


PE is an extremely important subject for both the physical and mental wellbeing of children. As such, we aim to teach many different sports and activities in our PE lessons as well as offering many extra-curricular PE options. The children will also have the opportunity to take part in sporting competitions against other schools.


  • To give all children the confidence and competence to engage in a range of physical activities. 
  • To create a broad PE curriculum offer that is ambitious and offers a balanced access to a range of sports.
  • For staff to feel confident when teaching the PE curriculum so that children get a high quality teaching offer.
  • For all children to lead physically active and healthy lives into adulthood.
  • To utilise expert teaching and skills to support both staff and children.
  • To provide stimuli for children and teachers to see the purpose and relevance within what they're learning.
