Physical Education

PE Curriculum Overview

We believe that a physical education curriculum should engage all pupils and inspire them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Through a varied curriculum, taught and enriched by specialist teachers and passionate sportsmen and women, we provide a wide range of sporting experiences. We hope that full engagement and motivation at a young age will build a lifetime habit of participation, and contribute towards physical and emotional flourishing for all pupils. Through opportunities to enjoy, take part and compete in sport and outdoor educational activities we seek to build determination and character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Representing the school in competition is a privilege which is gained through sport and enjoyed by many during their time at school.


Our curriculum is based upon the National Curriculum. It 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. 

The PE and Sports Premium is used to enrich and extend the PE curriculum in a number of ways. The document published on our website outlines current plans, previous spend and its impact.

The curriculum is enriched by a large range of extra-curricular sporting activities which include football, netball, cricket, gymnastics, cross-country, multi-sports activities, athletics and short tennis. These activities facilitate further practice, develop skills and raise levels of ability in individuals.

Children represent the school in a range of competitions and tournaments throughout the year. Their participation, success and sportsmanship are celebrated in assemblies, in newsletters such as GX Voice, and on the school's X (Twitter) account

Residential visits in both Years 5 and 6 extend the PE curriculum through a range of adventurous physical activities. Year 4 also enjoy an outdoor adventurous activities day in a local setting.
