Physical education

At Grange Primary School, we aim to develop pupils who will be physically active and can flourish in a range of different physical activities. We use the Primary PE Planning curriculum and our aims are to develop pupils who:

  • Are willing to practise skills in a range of different activities and situations, alone, in small groups and in teams, and to apply these skills in chosen activities to achieve exceptionally high levels of performance.

  • Have and maintain high levels physical fitness.

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

  • Are able to remain physically active for sustained periods of time and have an understanding of 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.

  • Are able to improve their own and others’ performance.

  • Can work independently for extended periods of time without the need for guidance or support.

  • 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.

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

To ensure all of the children at Grange receive the best possible PE curriculum, we follow the Primary PE curriculum, which ensures that all skills are covered and progress through the different year groups, phases and key stages. The following documents show how we have mapped out our PE curriculum across Grange Primary School.
