PE Curriculum Intent Statement


Physical education at King Street Primary School aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children, now and for their future. We fully understand that physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle, both in body and mind; therefore, it is our intent to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, whilst teaching children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities, where children are taught to observe the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators - embedding life-long values. Learning will follow a progressive sequence with clearly defined end points and will focus on the following strands: invasion games, athletics, gymnastics, dance, striking and fielding, problem solving, swimming and net games with an overriding theme of healthy lifestyles.Through the evaluation of performance and self-challenge, children will develop resilience within physical activity giving all the chance to succeed. 

As a school, we know that through the teaching of Physical Education, children will learn how to become confident, creative and physically active pupils with a clear understanding of a healthy lifestyle. Planning has been tailored to ensure that pupils will develop the ability to work as part of a team/group, manage and control risks, confidently and competently use a variety of sporting equipment and rules; as well as create and perform routines in front of an audience. Children will understand clear links between their learning and real life – recognising how their developing knowledge and skills can be applied today, beyond school and into later life, including potential career paths within a sporting field. 

Although physical education is a highly practical subject, learning will be underpinned by core substantive and disciplinary knowledge, skills, concepts and vocabulary on which children will have the confidence to be more creative, making more informed decisions when playing and performing. 

We aspire for every child leaving King Street Primary School at the end of Year 6 will: 

  • lead a healthy lifestyle, which is achieved by: eating sensibly, being aware of the dangers of drugs, smoking and alcohol and exercising regularly; 

  • be able to remain physically active for sustained periods of time and understand the importance of this in promoting long-term health and well-being; 

  • take the initiative and become excellent young leaders, organising and officiating, and evaluating what needs to be done to improve, and motivating and instilling excellent sporting attitudes in others; 

  • employ imagination and creativity in their techniques, tactics and choreography; 

  • be able to improve their own and others’ performance; 

  • have a keen interest in PE - a willingness to participate eagerly in every lesson, highly positive attitudes and the ability to make informed choices about engaging fully in extracurricular sport; 

  • be able to swim at least 25 metres before the end of Year 6 and know how to remain safe in and around water.
