PE Curriculum Statement


At Heytesbury School, our intent for Physical Education is to promote the physical and social development and healthy lifestyles of children, as well as provide a range of experiences and opportunities to develop confidence, resilience and determination.  

This will be achieved through a range of both competitive and non-competitive sports and activities. We encourage our children to lead healthy, active life styles and aspire to improve and challenge themselves.


What is taught in PE?

 As part of our broad and balanced curriculum we aim to:

  •          develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  •          be physically active for sustained periods of time
  •          engage in competitive sports and activities
  •          lead healthy, active lives

What will my child learn?

We follow a scheme of work called ‘Complete PE’.  There are 10 different areas, which have been mapped out across the three classes. Each class studies two different areas each term, one with their class teacher and the other with an Acorn Education Trust sports coach. All three classes are following a rolling program to ensure children have access to a wide range of experiences to develop skills, confidence and motivation.

In addition, the children will participate in a variety of competitive and non-competitive events as well have the opportunity to attend after school sports clubs.
