The National Curriculum

The National Curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure 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.


  • We teach P.E to develop an enjoyment and love for sport, whilst also encouraging a healthy lifestyle that they will carry with them through their lives.
  • Children are taught from the early years to develop a foundation of fundamental skills. We use PE Passport which is based on a spiral curriculum.  Each discipline eg hockey is taught every two year so that the children experience a wide range of sports.  Gymnastics and dance are taught each year.  Where possible, we link our sports lessons to competitive competitions at the local high school so that as many children as possible are encouraged to participate in competition.  As they progress through the school, these fundamentals will be essential to their continued development through a broad range of sports and activities.
  • Sport is also offered in lunchtime club and at after school clubs
