We firmly believe that the recipe for success is high quality first-wave teaching in Physical Education, which is central to the life of our happy, caring school.

PE Curriculum Overview 2023-2024

What Our Pupils Say...


Lyla - "My favourite thing is the warm ups and the games because sometimes we play foxes and rabbits. PE is important because it helps you get nice and strong!"


Kisu - "I like co-ordination because I like throwing and things that are fast. PE makes you good so that when you fall you can balance yourself really well so you won't fall."


Phoebe - "In PE we do tennis and I like hitting the ball up and down. This year, I've got better at balancing. PE is good because you get lots of exercise and we get to run around. You get to learn new things!"


Brodhi - "My favourite thing is improving, I've got better at hopping. PE is important because you can burn calories! We get to get up and move around. I like working with partners."


Ana-Maria - "I like learning new things and using apparatus. You get better in PE by learning it and practising."


Norah - "I like PE because I like how we play tennis and get to do different things and use the apparatus. I think you should practise at home and keep practising in school. I like how we throw the ball in tennis and when we do gymnastics.”


Lila  - "I like PE because I like how there's different levels of challenges and I'm getting onto the harder challenges. PE is important to exercise your body.”


Camden - "I like the balancing because it's a new challenge. PE helps you to develop loads of skills because if you're playing tennis you need to move quickly and if you're balancing you can develop your leg muscles so you move quicker.”

They competed to earn points for their team in variety of activities from skipping to the egg and spoon race! This competition aimed to promote physical activity in an inclusive, fun environment and gave our older pupils a chance to develop their leadership skills.
