At St Cuthbert’s, our aim is for Physical Education to engage, develop (both mentally and physically) and help to challenge our pupils. We also hope to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and British Values. We believe physical education gives children confidence, resilience and helps to instil strong sporting attitudes. Our lessons enable our children to become physically literate in the key fundamental movement skills (agility, balance and gross and fine motor skills) and become physically confident with supporting their fitness and health.



We have a progressive curriculum that aims to help the children with the essential abilities to realise their potential. We allow the children to understand what quality physical activity looks and feels like and how, with practice, they can improve their skill sets to reach higher quality outcomes. We cover the national curriculum themes of athletics, dance, gymnastics, swimming, OAA and games (net and wall, invasion and striking and fielding) to ensure all children develop appreciation of their own strengths and weaknesses.
