'Let your Light Shine' Matthew 5:16


Statement of Intent

The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators.


End of KS1 and KS2 expectations in Physical Education:

  • Physical Education is the perfect vehicle through which to develop the crucial skills and attributes required for the modern world.
  • Effective delivery of the National Curriculum Expectations will ensure that children develop into thinking physical beings and doing physical beings which impact on the behavioural change to equip them for lifelong participation.
  • Using the concept of Head (thinking) Hands (doing) and Heart (behavioural change) this poster is designed to support primary teachers to assess their children at the end of Key Stages One and Two.
  • Most should be well established within the end of Key Stage Attainment Target, a few will still be emerging and a few will be exceeding it.






We aim to:

  • Create a curriculum that develops, motivates and enthuses every child
  • Give opportunities for all pupils to develop their leadership and coaching skills
  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Provide high quality opportunities
  • Assist each individual to be the best they can be
  • Promote lifelong learning, active participation and competition
  • Promote competition and excellence within sport and help foster links with and encourage attendance of ‘higher sporting institutions’




  • PE at Grove  Primary School provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including; invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure.
  • The long term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.
  • Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering two sporting disciplines every half term. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities.
  • Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children.
  • Children in Year 4, 5 and 6 will be given the opportunity to swim during the course of the year. This is aimed to improve their life skills.
  • We ensure that every pupil, regardless of SEN(D) or ability, is able to participate in the curriculum.


Planning and Lessons

From the long-term overview, teachers will plan a sequence of lessons using skills and progression. Teachers will use Complete PE planning alongside the National Curriculum expectations.



All pupils will be assessed using Complete PE criteria which are linked to the National Curriculum expectations.




We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
