Physical Education at Scunthorpe Church of England Primary



Our aims for PE are:

  • to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, encouraging children to adapt positive attitudes towards PE and physical activity
  • to provide opportunities for children to learn new skills, find out how to use them in different ways and link them to make actions, phrases and sequences of movement
  • to develop awareness of health and safety issues within PE
  • to provide opportunities for children to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other whilst developing a sense of fair play
  • to provide equal opportunity for all pupils in PE, regardless of gender or disability
  • to develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success


Our objectives for PE are:

  • to provide a balanced programme of physical education
  • to create and perform
  • to practise and acquire a range physical and dexterous fine and gross motor skills
  • to develop tactical awareness in all sports
  • to evaluate and improve performance
  • to develop knowledge and understanding of fitness and health
  • to model and develop leadership qualities


All children from Reception to Year 6 take part in at least two PE lessons each week. These lessons are either taught by the class teacher or by our Sports Coach, Owen Underwood.

Development of skills throughout the Key Stages


In the Foundation stage the focus is on providing children with physical development and opportunities for young children to be active and interactive.  We aim to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.


In Key Stage One children move onto to mastering basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities. They also begin to participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending as well as performing dances using simple movements.


In Key Stage Two children then continue refining these skills and begin to develop them further by using them in a range of PE activities and sports including Gymnastics, Dance, Invasion Games, Net/Wall Games and Outdoor Adventurous Activities. In Year 4, children are given the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons as part of their Physical Education. These take place at The Pods.
