PE has the power to inspire, motivate and challenge. Whether individually or as part of a team, taking part in physically demanding activities builds character and embeds lifelong values of fairness and respect. Physical and mental wellbeing go hand in hand; sport helps us maintain balance and grow in confidence.



Content is drawn from the National Curriculum and has four core elements:

  • Developing competence; building skills in a wide range of physical activity from dance to tennis.

  • Sustaining activity; being able to run longer distances, complete more circuits, swim more lengths achieve personal bests.

  • Experiencing competition; learning to play as a team, show patience, communicate and co-operate to achieve a common goal.

  • Leading healthy, active lives; build habits that last, understanding the importance of physical activity in our wellbeing.
