The Intent of our Physical Education Curriculum

At Threshfield Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy

By the time students leave Threshfield Primary school they will have experienced a broad Physical Education curriculum creating physically literate children.

Students will have the skills, knowledge and understanding to continue and succeed in PE, sport and physical activity at Secondary School and the knowledge to lead active healthy lifestyles.

To become physically literate students will have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

Students from EYFS and key stage 1 will develop confidence in skills such as running, jumping, throwing, catching, dance and gymnastics. These skills provide the building blocks to progress into Key Stage 2 and can be applied in practice and within a competitive environment. Students will experience a range of different physical activities including games (invasion, net/wall and strike and fielding), athletics, gymnastics, dance, swimming and OAA.

We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.

The Implementation of our Physical Education Curriculum

P.E. is taught at a minimum of one PE session a week, and two sessions per week wherever possible. We teach lessons so that children:

  • Have fun and experience success in sport
  • Have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development
  • Secure and build on a range of skills
  • Develop good sporting attitudes
  • Understand basic rules
  • Experience positive competition
  • Learn in a safe environment
  • Have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.

The Impact of our Physical Education Curriculum

P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life.

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.

At Threshfield, we provide opportunities for children 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.
