Physical Education (PE)


At Broseley C of E Primary School, we are proud to receive the Sports Games Gold mark for the third year running for our commitment to the development of competition across our school and into the community. We offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.

Our PE provision is both progressive and develops the fundamental skills at an age-appropriate level:

  • KS1 - Development: Ages & Stages-Emerging Physical Skills.
  • LKS2 - School Games: 14 fundamentals movements assessment.
  • UKS2 - School Games: Mastery of 14 fundamentals movements assessment.

As a member of the East Shropshire Sports Partnership, our PE provision is widely enhanced through further sporting opportunities.  Each year, we aim for all our children in Key Stage Two to be given the opportunity to represent the school in a sporting event. We regularly compete in friendly and competitive football matches as well as entering competitions for cross country, athletics, cricket, new age curling, dance, netball, boccia and multi-skills.

We also offer a range of sporting after school clubs; some being delivered by school staff and others by outside agencies. These include Football, Netball and Multi-Sports.

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
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

We intend to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides 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.

We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices. PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. Within dance it will allow children to explore their personal and spiritual identity.


Implementation: How is P.E. taught at Broseley C of E? 

The curriculum is carefully sequenced to ensure that pupils build upon the ‘Fundamental ABC skills’ they have been taught. The fundamental movement skills that make up the ABC's of physical activity can be broken down into three categories:

1. Locomotor skills: running, jumping, hopping, and skipping.
2. Object: control skills: catching, throwing, kicking, and bouncing.
3. Stability skills: balancing, twisting, rotation, and landing.

In addition to this, we also ensure each pupil develops the understanding of competitive sport through tactical thinking and regulating their emotions through success and failure. We develop our pupils the understanding of Equality within sport, valuing diversity. We encourage Empowerment through competitive competitions within the East Shropshire partnership and support in the understanding of sustainability within their health and fitness.

 Support for Pupils with SEND

At the beginning of each unit of work, key pieces of knowledge for the unit are selected and work takes place to ensure that pupils with SEND are retaining and building on this. In addition, adaptations within lessons such as bigger/smaller goals, less/more distance travelled is there to support the pupils to achieve within all P.E. lessons.


At the beginning of a unit, children will complete the skills learnt previously in relation to their sport as well as the new skill to be taught and developed to be used as measure of progression. At the beginning of each lesson, pupils complete a ‘knowing more and remembering more’ task which assesses the knowledge they have retained from previous lessons.

During lessons, teachers move around and give pupils verbal feedback. They may be asked to demonstrate a skill again or to discuss what they could improve for next time. The sequence of learning ends through a skills check, where the teacher can assess if they achieved the specific skill.


Regular monitoring and evaluation demonstrates that pupils are confident and able to talk knowledgeably about what they have learned in P.E. using subject specific vocabulary. The pupil voice discussions show that pupils greatly enjoy P.E. and can recall their learning and knowledge over time, making links between units of work.  Pupils demonstrating their skills learnt within their P.E. lessons through mini games and competitive opportunities demonstrates that P.E. is taught at a high standard across the school with opportunities for pupils to work at a greater depth. As a result, pupils make sustained progress across both key stages.
