Overall Objective – To develop the pedagogical approaches in PE lessons

At Stone St Mary’s C.E. Primary School, our children partake in an inspiring and creative curriculum in all subjects, allowing them to develop knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm. This is applied to our PE curriculum to ensure that all our children leave Stone St Mary’s physically educated along with the knowledge, skills, and motivation needed to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and participation in physical activity and sport. Our children have many opportunities to find their sport and represent our school in a wide range of competitions, opportunities and after school clubs. Our vision and values within our school are linked to our overall teaching of PE, ensuring collaboration, perseverance in a caring environment where knowledge and skills can grow.



Below are our expectations for the end of each key stage:

End of EYFS Statement:

  • Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing. 
  • Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
  • Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.
  • Children know the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently.


End of Key Stage 1 Statement:

  • Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
  • Pupils should be taught to:
  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns.


End of Key Stage 2 Statement:

  • Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
  • Pupils should be taught to:
  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate, such as badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis, and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance, for example through athletics and gymnastics
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
