Physical Education

At Christ Church school we aim to inspire, motivate and challenge pupil’s knowledge, skill and physical fitness through P.E. and wider opportunities. We aim to develop their physical knowledge, skills and health & fitness throughout their duration at school.



Children will develop their ability to acquire new knowledge and skills exceptionally well and develop an in-depth understanding of PE. They will be able to display exceptional levels of originality, imagination and creativity in their techniques, tactics and choreography and have knowledge of how to improve their own skills and that of others. 



Children will be able to transfer skills learnt and have willingness to practise skills in a wide 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. They will also be given opportunities to 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. By the end of Year 6, children will be able to swim at least 25 metres and have sufficient knowledge of how to remain safe in and around water. 



Children will learn the essential elements of leading a healthy lifestyle, achieved by eating sensibly, avoiding smoking, drugs and alcohol and exercising regularly. They will strive to maintain high levels of physical fitness, remain physically active for sustained periods of time and an understand the importance of this in promoting long-term health and well-being. 


It is our aim at Christ Church School to provide opportunity, both in and out of school, for children to engage and have a keen interest in P.E. We strive to promote children’s willingness to participate eagerly in every lesson, have highly positive attitudes and the ability to make informed choices about engaging fully in extra-curricular sport.
