High-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect (Department for Education, 2013).


What is high quality PE?

  • Committed to PE and Sport. Pupils remember their kits do not often miss PE lessons. Pupils are also committed outside of school to Sport.

  • Pupils know and understand what they are wanting to achieve and how best to go about achieving it.

  • Pupils understand the benefits that PE and Sport offers including leading a healthy active lifestyle.

  • Pupils have the confidence to get involved with PE and Sport. Examples can include demonstrating in lessons, answering questions and asking for help if they need it.

  • Pupils have the skills and control in order to take part in PE and Sport by showing good body control, balance and show fluency and accuracy in their movements.

  • Pupils willingly take part in various competitive, creative and challenge-type activities.

  • Pupils show a desire to improve in lessons whilst achieving their best possible results.

  • Pupils have the stamina, suppleness and strength to keep going whilst maintaining their energy and activity levels.

  • Pupils enjoy PE, School and Community Sport


    Physical Literacy:


    What is Physical Literacy?


    Every parent/carer wants their child or children to be happy, healthy and confident at any stage of their life but if children do not have the right skills, confidence or motivation to be physically active then the chances of the above happening are less likely.


    If a child is physically literate, this means that they have the right technical skills, the confidence and the motivation to take part in a range of activities at all stages of their life. Research has found that being physically active when you are older is linked to the skills you learnt when you were young and without developing physical literacy, children are more likely to become more withdrawn from physical activity.


    Four elements for physical literacy:


  • Physical skills

  • Confidence

  • Motivation

  • Opportunities





    All students at Stanley St Peter's develop their physical literacy skills in every lesson of PE. This is done through the following methods:


Key Stage



Pupils are provided opportunities to engage in structured and free play which involves developing their control and coordination in various movements. Pupils learn about different factors that contribute to keeping healthy. For example, physical activity and what to eat to stay healthy.


Pupils develop their fundamental movement skills (running, jumping, throwing and catching). Developing these skills will enable pupils to have a wide range of learning experiences. Pupils are also offered the chance to experience multi skills clubs after school to build on the skills learnt in school.

Lower KS2 (Years 3 and 4)

Pupils develop their creative, social and thinking skills in PE through various activities whilst beginning to understand the positive benefits for being physically active. Pupils are offered the chance to experience a wide range of traditional and not traditional extra-curricular activities

Upper KS2 (Years 5 and 6)

Pupils develop their physical, social and thinking skills through different sporting activities. These activities allow the pupils to develop their leadership abilities and build on their knowledge of healthy active lifestyles. Pupils are offered the chance to experience a wide range of extra-curricular activities that allow pupils to experience activities that they may want to take up outside of school.
