Physical Education (PE)

Curriculum Intent

Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We provide them with a range of active experiences across the curriculum. We aim to ensure that the delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles. We have strong links with local clubs and partnerships within our community to ensure the children and families receive the support and knowledge they need. A variety of sports are enjoyed across the school. The basic fundamental core skills are taught alongside social and emotional aspects of PE. Children know about a variety of world wide competitions and athletes that compete in them through assemblies, news, events and circle time. Children aspire to be like professional athletes through the sport they experience.


Our PE scheme of work is Get Set 4 PE. The scheme of work provides lessons which build on the children’s knowledge and skills as they grow. The curriculum has been designed so children experience a wide range of sports. Children learn about a variety of world wide competitions and athletes that compete in them through assemblies, news, events and circle time.

In EYFS and KS1 children develop fundamental movement skills. They become increasingly competent and confident across a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.

In KS2, children continue to develop these skills, whilst adding more sport specific games. The pupils begin to develop a greater understanding for a wide range of physical activity within games, dance, gymnastics and athletics amongst others. The children develop their own physical activity but they also begin to analyse tactics and work on problem solving to achieve a goal, as well as evaluating their own and the success of others. In year 4, the children take part in swimming to achieve swimming the distance of 25m.

Children enjoy taking part in a variety of different extra curricular activities such as football, multisports, dance, netball, gymnastics and others. They have the opportunity to compete against other schools with the girls and boys football team as well as events organised by School games.

The pupils also access physical activity through cross curricular links, for instance learning games of the past times including games of the Victorian era as well as Roman times or within science the children delve into how the body works looking at athletes such as Dina Asha Smith.

Biggin Hill Primary School Academy has accepted Government funding to increase the calibre and provision of school sport. The School is committed to ensuring that quality and sustainability are chiefly attended to, as can be reflected by the particular focus placed upon enhancing professional development of teaching staff therefore increasing the experiences and opportunities given to the children.
