P.E and Sports at Bewsey Lodge

PE Curriculum

At Bewsey Lodge we intend to deliver a wide variety of high-quality physical education. Working on children's physical health but also mental well-being. 
 Our P.E. lessons cover a range of physical activity and sport such as: funermental movement skills, invasion games, gymnastics, athletics, football, fitness and agility, swimming and ortineering. Our teachers aim to build character, competiveness and most importantly, help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Each area of physical and sport development is carefully differentiated to ensure that our children progress each year as they pass through school. We use the "P.E Passport scheme" to ensure that our specilist teacher can assess and monitor progression across the school.  Our P.E specilist  Mr Riley teaches several year groups he knows the children extremely well. This ensures that progression can continue into the next academic year and beyond. 
See our proposed LTP.
(This year we have added orienteering into our P.E sessions from Year 1 upwards, to support our drive in Geography). 

The Curriculum 

EYFS- In early years we focus on: fundamental movement skills (FMS) and fine motor skills which consists of; throwing, catching, jumping, striking, running, kicking and agility. 

KS1- FMS, invasion games, gymnastics and athletics. 

KS2- Invasion games, fitness and agility, athletics, gymnastics, striking and fielding, orienteering and swimming.

The children in Year 3/4 access swimming lessons at Great Sankey Hub for 10 weeks. Additionally, year 6 access a further 6 sessions at SWIM! to boast their confidence. 

See swimming page for more details.

Designated Provision-

Alongside Mr Riley and Mrs Nicholson, we have a specialist coach Mr Donnelly from Warrington Wolves Foundation, who deliver physical and sports development sessions to our children with additional needs. They plan and teach exciting activities for the children in the Designated Provisions, which develop the children’s physically ability and encourages them to play team games.


Each class across Key Stage 2 will participate in an extra hour of physical activity and sport for a half term as part of their CLASP session. They will improve their skills whilst playing enjoyable team games. Alongside the sports lessons, children will participate in a ‘Commando Joe’ session, developing their skills in teamwork, confidence and physical activity. Research has proven that these skills transfer into other aspects of the children’s lives and help build confident and resilient learners.

Last year we introduced 'Born to Move' which was a huge success, the children particularly enjoyed the stories it told in the early years. It is a fantastic way to help the children get moving in a fun and engaging way, learning new skills and the correct way to move. This year it will be led by Mr Riley and hopefully our fitness instructor Mr Bannister in the Spring Term. 

See our CLASP page for more information.

Progression in P.E

Gaining new skills and knowledge is based on prior learning and skills from previous years. Therefore Mr Riley, who teaches across the school each year, has a very good understanding of where the children’s strengths need to be built upon and the areas of support he needs to give to each child to develop at the start of every new year.

Mr Riley and Mrs Nicholson use careful observations of children’s effort, technique and skill to assess progression. We use the P.E objectives to understand where the children need to be and how they are going to help them achieve that objective. This year we will be using Primary P.E Passport- an app that can be used easily within P.E sessions to monitor children’s progress and record the childrens effort. 

Here's a link for more information on Primary P.E Passport.


Feedback (group and individual) and questioning is used to help progress and improve the children’s performance. Questioning is particularly used to help encourage children to talk about their learning and giving them the opportunity to use technical vocabulary that we expect them to use in P.E lessons.

P.E Kit

Your child should have an indoor and outdoor P.E kit. 

The contents of the kits should include:


 White T shirt, blue shorts and black pumps.

Outdoor :

White T shirt, tracksuit bottoms, tracksuit jacket/ jumper, trainers.


Please note that earrings should be taken out or plasters sent in to cover them up. This is for health and safety reasons.

Trainers must be worn for outdoor PE lessons as they are harder wearing and support the children’s feet better on the hard ground.


We encourage our children to participate in sporting competitions where possible. This may be either within school or competing against other schools in Warrington and the surrounding areas.

This year we will be taking part in football tournaments throughout the year with other schools in the local area. Your child may be chosen to participate in the team from time to time. The children are improving their skills weekly in football club, so we’re really looking forward to the year ahead.

Other competitions will be organised throughout the year and we try and encourage all years to take part in a range of different sports. We aim to not only improve the children’s skills but to boost their confidence and enable them to be a good sport and display sportsmanship!
