PE Curriculum

St Cuthbert’s Primary School Physical Education Vision:

‘For all children to leave St Cuthbert’s Primary School with the skills, confidence, knowledge and enthusiasm for a lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’

Physical Education is an essential part of our school curriculum. We ensure that all children are provided with the opportunity to participate in two high quality PE lessons each week. Pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 also take part in swimming lessons across a 2 week block. The sessions are delivered by high quality instructors at Our Lady and St Bede’s.

Physical Education inspires all pupils to succeed and achieve in competitive sport and other physical activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.

Key Stage 1 children focus on developing their fundamental movement skills, through accessing a broad range of activities to extend their creativity, balance, agility and coordination.

Key Stage 2 children focus on applying and developing a broader range of skills; learning how to use them in different ways and linking them to make actions and sequences of movement. They also learn the rules and boundaries of different games and sports and have the opportunity to referee matches to show an understanding of fair play. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other in a range of sports and activities as well as developing an understanding of how to improve through reflection and evaluation to help recognise their own success.

We provide a range of sports and activities for our children within PE and as After School Clubs, including; gymnastics, dance, football, badminton, volleyball, netball, hockey, athletics, archery etc. This allows our lessons to be inclusive for all of our children.
