Through physical activities we aim to develop the children’s physique, their strength and stamina, together with their motor and co-ordination skills. We aim to encourage them to work co-operatively and with creativity as they build their skills.
Our PE curriculum is based around a scheme called Real PE. The learning in this scheme supports the development of the fundamental skills that are required in order to be active and to enjoy physical activity eg: coordination, balance and agility. Each programme is also designed around a learning focus or ‘cog’. There are 6 different ‘cogs’ that are highlighted during the year. These are:
Health and Fitness
In designing our curriculum this way we aim to ensure the children not only build the skills required to take part in sports and games but also that they enjoy being physically active and so create lifelong learning habits.

In the Early Years the classes all have one session of PE in the school hall every week as well as their daily outdoor curriculum provision.
In Key Stage One the classes all have two sessions of PE a week and these generally take place in the school hall but may be on the playground if weather permits.
In the Summer term each year we hold Sports Days for Year 2 and a whole School Sports Event on the Junior School field.
