Physical Education

‘The sky has no limits. Neither should you.’ 

Usain Bolt 




At Woodchurch CE Primary School, our PE curriculum aims to provide an inclusive and enjoyable high-quality provision that inspires all pupils to develop confidence in their physical abilities and skills. It is carefully planned and structured to educate pupils in the knowledge of their body and how to safely develop their physical abilities. Through the use of physical activities children learn the skills required to use their bodies efficiently and effectively, understanding how their body moves to affect their performance and the importance of a healthy and fit lifestyle. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, as well as developing values and transferable life skills such as fairness and life-long values. 




Through the teaching of PE, we aim to ensure that the children’s experience of Physical Education is positive and motivating and that children’s attitudes to a healthy lifestyle are firmly embedded in our curriculum. The PE curriculum is taught through the use of a scheme from Greenacres Sport Partnership , which is in-line with the National Curriculum, and is used to aid teaching staff in their subject knowledge and planning of PE. Teachers are able to adjust and change lessons to suit the needs of their classes but the scheme provides a strong basis of what is expected in each year group. 


Each class has access to two hours of high quality physical activity every week. These are either taught by the class teacher. Woodchurch CE Primary School also uses trained sport coaches from outside organisations to support and help run RE sessions.  


Each lesson, children are given the opportunity to practise skills in a variety of ways and each lesson builds upon the previous skills, allowing them time to embed it. Different skills are recapped throughout, and across, the years, each time they are being built upon; allowing children to know more and remember more.




At Woodchurch CE Primary School, we ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of sports and activities. All children are provided with the necessary skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active, and this has a positive impact on their learning in the classroom. Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of regular exercise. We aspire for children to enjoy PE and develop a love of sport and physical activity that they pursue outside of school and in future life outside of primary school. We share sporting achievements both in and out for school in Celebration Assembly, so that we are promoting sports and activities, as well as celebrating all levels of success.
