Physical Education


Each class has 2 hours per week timetabled to allow the pupils to work towards the development of the child’s physical and mental wellbeing. Our curriculum encompasses motor competence, rules, strategies and tactics, underpinned by a philosophy of healthy participation. PE sessions involve skills based activity and application of skill within a sporting context. Specific skills may be filmed or photographed so that the children can see what they are undertaking and review areas where they might need further development, so they can improve. Our subject leader will collect video or photographic evidence and share that on showbie for children and teachers to see.

Our physical education curriculum is strongly supported by an extensive menu of after-school clubs. We pride ourselves on the impact that sport and fitness can bring to the confidence and self esteem of all our children. We regularly compete in inter school sports competitions as well as an extensively well organised program of intra-school competitions which is supported by sports leaders.

We follow the principles of honesty, determination, respect, passion, teamwork and self-belief and we have recently achieved the Silver School games award along with virtual awards during the lockdown.
