Students must be healthy to be educated and educated to be healthy. 


The intent of our Physical Education curriculum at Park End Primary School is to deliver a curriculum that encourages children to acquire new skills and knowledge that they can apply to a range of sports and other team work scenarios. Our curriculum develops practical skills in order for children to participate, compete and lead a healthy lifestyle.  

At Park End Primary School, we aim for all pupils to: 

  • Master the basic, fundamental skills of PE
  • Gain the ability to acquire new knowledge and skills exceptionally well and develop an in-depth understanding of PE. 
  • To show a willingness to practise skills in a wide range of different activities and situations, alone, in small groups and in teams and to apply these skills in chosen activities to achieve high levels of performance. 
  • To lead a healthy lifestyle, achieved by eating sensibly and exercising regularly. 
  • To have the ability to remain physically active for sustained periods of time and an understanding of the importance of this in promoting long-term health and well-being.  
  • To encourage pupils to have the ability to take the initiative and become excellent young leaders, organising and officiating, and evaluating what needs to be done to improve, and motivating and instilling excellent sporting attitudes in others.   
  • To become more confident in communicating with their peers within team sports and in other aspects of life. 
  • To develop and show levels of originality, imagination and creativity in their techniques, tactics and choreography, knowledge of how to improve their own and others’ performance and the ability to work independently for extended periods of time without the need of guidance or support. 

PE at Park End Primary School plays a vital part of everyday school life. All pupils have a minimum of two hours of timetables PE each week. We ensure that pupils are exposed to a range of different sports, including games, outdoor adventurous activities, gymnastics, dance, swimming and athletics. 

Our whole school approach to teaching PE involves: 

  • An indoor or outdoor session of PE taught each week. 
  • Additional outdoor sessions of PE taught throughout summer term.  
  • Discussion around the science behind exercising to encourage pupils to lead a healthy lifestyle.  
  • Teaching the importance of warming up and cooling down and the impact this has on our bodies. 
  • A two year cycle of teaching skills within key stages – a year to master the basics and a year to deepen their learning and understanding. 
  • Using sport specific language within lessons to widen pupil vocabulary. 
  • To teach and model key leadership, independence and communication skills to allow pupils to take initiative, organise, evaluate and become excellent young leaders. 
  • Encouraging independence and the chance to be creative in their techniques, tactics and choreography. 
  • The use of the iSport Board to encourage pupils to participate in additional physical activity whilst recalling knowledge of a range of subjects. 

At Park End Primary School, we believe that a rich PE curriculum plays an important role in the development of children becoming active and healthy people. We feel that the PE curriculum will develop the following: 

  • Fundamental skills taught in every PE lesson to ensure pupils master the basics.
  • A better understanding of why we need to keep active to lead a healthy lifestyle. 
  • An understanding of a range of different sports, allowing children to choose sports that interest them to become their own personal hobbies. 
  • Children will be able to become leaders and display good teamwork. 
  • An understanding of key sporting vocabulary. 
  • The mastery of skills in a range of sports. 
  • An ability to work independently and creatively.  
  • Confidence of pupils and their ability to communicate effectively and with ease. 
  • An all-round healthy, motivated pupil with a willingness to participate eagerly in sporting activities.
