Welcome to the Physical Education department, where dreams of becoming a top athlete start through a high quality physical education curriculum. We inspire all pupils to enjoy, succeed and excel in  PE and we provide the opportunity for all our pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness. Our School Games Values (such as respect and fairness) are embedded in our lessons, helping to build character and promote a desire for  life long participation in sport. 

Our curriculum gives pupils the opportunity to:

  • Develop confidence in, enjoy, and excel in a wide range of activities
  • Be physically active for a sustained period of time
  • Engage in and enjoy competitive sports and activities
  • Lead healthy and active lives


At Key Stage 2

Pupils will develop a wide range of skills whilst learning how to use those skills in different ways. They will link their skills to make actions and sequences of movement. They will develop communication and collaboration skills whilst competing with each other. They will also learn to improve in different physical activities and sports and will learn to evaluate and recognise their own success. 

What will we cover?

 Year 5
  Year 6


At Key Stage 3

Pupils will embed and build on the physical development and skills they achieved in Key Stage 2 to become more confident and competent. They will apply the techniques they learn to different sports and activities. They will understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others' work. They will develop the confidence and interest to  participate in exercise and sport outside school, both now and in later life, and will understand the long term health benefits of physical activity.

 What will we cover?
