Physical Education

We see Physical Education as fundamental to the development of the whole child. We aim to give children the physical confidence necessary to choose activity as part of a long-term healthy lifestyle.

Our aim is to deliver high-quality PE and School Sport for all children.

The curriculum is broad and balanced


Key Stage 1 – children learn mainly through the ‘Leap into Life’ programme which includes modules on Functional movement, Aesthetic movement, Movement concepts and Manipulative skills and Handball.

Key Stage 2 – children learn through Tag Rugby, Handball, Netball, Swimming, Athletics, Games and Outdoor Activities (Summer Term).

Swimming lessons ensure that all children can swim 25m by the end of Key Stage 2 and we also provide Bikeability training so that children can stay safe while using bikes for leisure and fitness. Children in Year 6 are given the opportunity to take part in a residential trip which promotes self-reliance, confidence, social skills, problem-solving, cooperation and more.
