Physical Education (PE)

Intent: What do we hope to achieve?

In EYFS Phsyical Development  is vital in children’s all-round development, enabling them to pursue happy, healthy and active lives. Gross and fine motor experiences develop incrementally throughout early childhood, starting with sensory explorations and the development of a child’s strength, co-ordination and positional awareness through tummy time, crawling and play movement with both objects and adults. By creating games and providing opportunities for play both indoors and outdoors, adults can support children to develop their core strength, stability, balance, spatial awareness, co-ordination and agility. Gross motor skills provide the foundation for developing healthy bodies and social and emotional well-being. Fine motor control and precision helps with hand-eye co-ordination, which is later linked to early literacy. Repeated and varied opportunities to explore and play with small world activities, puzzles, arts and crafts and the practice of using small tools, with feedback and support from adults, allow children to develop proficiency, control and confidence.


In KS1 & KS2 national curriculum for Physical Education (PE) aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.


Implementation: How we will deliver PE?

In EYFS, the children's physical development is supported through activities within the classroom, the outdoor area and a weekly PE session in the school hall. 


In KS1 & 2 PE is taught twice weekly. The PE curriculum is delivered through REAL PE scheme of work and through working with specialist sports coaches. Children access swimming lessons in Year 4. 5 and 6.
