Physical Education & Sport


Our Physical Education curriculum intends to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Not only does it provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness but it encourages children to compete in sport and other activities which build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Our curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum aims for physical education and it ensures that all pupils:

* develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

* are physically active for sustained periods of time

* engage in competitive sports and activities

* lead healthy, active lives.


At our school we use a scheme called PE Passport which ensures our curriculum is progressive, supportive and challenging. Our specialsit PE coach works full time at our sc

hool and delivers weeekly lessons to all children from 3-11. Mr Riley has been with us for many years and, knowing the children so well, he can plan effectively to ensure that children are supported, developing and challenged at every opportunity. Additionally, we invest in specialist instructors and use outside provision (including residential activity holidays) to ensure children are exposed to a wider variety of sports beyond the usual expectations at the primary phase. Our CLASP sessions often incorporate these enriched experiences and have included activities such as: Ju jit su, boxing/FITBOX, skiing, snowboarding, golf and Quidditch! you can read more about CLASP by clicking HERE.


At the end of each unit, the children are assessed against the learning criteria set out in PE Passport. We use this data to tell us how well our children are doing in PE but it also helps us to understand w

hich areas are strongest and also if we need to furthe

r develop in certain areas. Data and lesson feedback can also help us to understand where chlidren may need additional support or where they may be excelling.


All of children learn to swim in Year 4, you can find our most recent swimming data HERE. Sometimes our children need additional support to meet the expected standard in swimming, In these cases we offer additional swimming lessons before the child leaves for high school. You can read more about our swimming lessons HERE.

Residential visits

Children are encouraged to go on the residential holidays we offer in both Key Stages 1 and 2.

The holidays are based at specialist centres where being active, trying new things and confidence building are at the heart of everything they do. Canoeing, kayaking, high ropes, zip wires, caving, hiking and rock climbing are just some the activities on offer alongside team building activites such as quiz nights, problem solving games and crafts.
