Camrose Primary School

Physical Education (PE)

'The national curriculum for PE aims to ensure that all pupils: develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, are physically active for sustained periods of time and engage in competitive sports and activities'

The PE Curriculum Progression Grid shows what will be covered by all children and how skills and knowledge are developed as the children progress through the school.

PE Progression Grid

Ambition / Intent:

PE plays a vital role in promoting physical activities and a healthy lifestyle in a positive and enjoyable way for all pupils. PE gives pupils the ability to develop their physical well-being in a range of physical activities and sports – helping them to grow and achieve their personal fitness and learn important life skills.

Through physical education, we teach students a set of all-important values including self-belief, teamwork, determination, honesty, passion and respect. We want children to learn to include exercise and physical activity as part of their lifestyle

Design / Implementation:

Teachers use curriculum objectives from LTPE to plan, deliver and assess a broad range of knowledge, skills and understanding. Many PE lessons include activities which also help to embed knowledge from other areas of the curriculum such as Geography, History, Science and Math. 

Curriculum enrichment activities such as Wellness Days and Sports Week, intra-school competitions and sports leadership opportunities provide children with inspirational experiences where they can apply and build on the skills they have learnt. Through the wide range of activities children experience within the PE curriculum they are able to develop a set of values which will prepare them for their future lives.

The focus on co-operative, collaborative and competitive experiences is an ideal environment to model, practice and embeds our school values of resilience, responsibility, reflection, resourcefulness, readiness and respect


At Camrose, we ensure that our PE curriculum is inclusive and progressive and allows all children the opportunity to acquire and develop fundamental knowledge, understanding, skills and techniques and apply these to a wide variety of different sports and activities.

PE lessons are fun, enjoyable and challenging and all pupils can achieve, to the best of their ability, in a supportive, safe and stimulating environment.  Pupils understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of regular exercise and activity for their physical and mental wellbeing.

We aspire for all children to enjoy PE and develop a love of sport and physical activity.
