Physical Education

Physical Education at St Julian's Church School

PE is taught every Wednesday supported by Premier Education alongside our teaching staff. Over the year children cover a range of skills following the National Curriculum. Children in Key Stage 1 and 2 are taught swimming throughout the year. Upper Key Stage 2 children are also taught water safety skills as part of the national curriculum.

Why do we place such an importance on teaching of good quality PE?


In the EYFS children are introduced to PE within the Physical Development aspect , teaching of skills that will enable them to develop both gross and fine motor skills. Through play and games children develop the ability to travel in different ways (running, hopping, skipping, jogging) , spacial awareness, ball skills (throwing, catching, rolling) and balance. These skills also support children with their confidence , team building, listening and attention as well as communication and language. This teaching provides the prerequisite skills they need to progress into Year 1 and the National Curriculum

Year 1 – Year 6

A high-quality physical education curriculum 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.
Children are given opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed
values such as fairness and respect.

The national curriculum for physical education 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.
