At Senacre Wood Primary School, we strive to provide a physical education that encourages participation in physical activities and healthy active lives. Across our curriculum, we aim to provide a wide range of opportunities to help our pupils develop confidence when taking part in physical activities. We place importance upon the character values of fairness and respect that are intrinsic to sport.



Using the National Curriculum for PE, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop a love for physical activities by having opportunities to learn and practice new skills/sports.
  • Understand the importance of regular physical activity and how physical fitness positively impacts health.
  • Are able to develop fluency with the fundamentals of physical activity such as coordination, strength, flexibility and endurance that are required to perform or compete in a range of sports and activities.
  • Are encouraged to reflect upon their own performances during PE lessons and suggest ways to make improvements.

In essence, we would like all pupils at Senacre Wood Primary to take away positive experiences from their PE lessons that will encourage them to engage with physical activities outside of school. Pupils should build upon and develop skills year upon year demonstrating a good understanding of a range of sports and other physical activities. PE lessons should provide many fantastic opportunities for pupils to demonstrate their sense of teamwork, fairness and respect.

For details of how we implement this within our school and how we measure the impact, please read our PE policy.
