Physical Education


Physical Education is an essential part of the curriculum giving our pupils the opportunity to develop many, if not all, of the Personal Best concepts and values. 

Alongside physical health and skills we recognise the importance of mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, by encouraging a high level of participation in all aspects of PE we are providing our pupils with essential tools and mindset to manage and cope with difficulties in their everyday life.  

By providing a rich and broad range of activities we develop the enjoyment of physical activity with the aim that all pupils will find a sport or activity that engages them and encourages a lifelong interest in physical activity or sport. Before leaving our school we aim for every child to have  been given the opportunity to compete in a sport and represent the school, to have experienced and gained skills in a wide range of activity and sports and to be able to swim at least 25 metres.

PE supports our 'My Personal Best' values. Whilst providing a better understanding of how to lead an active, healthy lifestyle, pupils also gain skills and values such as communication, co-operation, leadership, respect and resilience, which can be applied within other areas of school life and beyond their time in our school. 

We aim for all our pupils to have an active 10-15 minutes of exercise each day through the Daily Mile. This is in addition to the 2 timetabled taught PE lessons each week. We aim for our playtimes to be active and healthy for mind and body. A range of resources and activities are encouraged for physical well being as well as quieter areas for calm and opportunities for reflection and social time with friends.

We follow the Lancashire Scheme of Learning using the PE passport App. 


We have lots of special festival days planned this year! We have tried out Dodgeball and are looking forward to our next one in January focussing on Basketball!

We had a visit from a professional Basketball player, Paul Sturgess in November. He is the tallest Basketball player in the world! He showed us some amazing tricks and we all got to try them out!
