When education the minds of our young people we must not forget to educate their hearts.


At St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Primary School, Physical Education is very important to us all. Our intent is to educate the pupils to see the value of physical activity and give them the confidence, knowledge, skills and understanding to lead healthy, active lives and engage in competitive sports and activities.


Our aims are to fulfil the National Curriculum for Physical Education through active and engaging lessons. Each unit of work is based on developing the skills and understanding of how to take part in a sporting activity and culminates in a performance or competition.

In Key Stage 1 our pupils learn the fundamental skills of Physical Education. Then in Key Stage 2 they develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Our long-term plan takes into account the opportunities for the children to represent our school in inter school competitions.


The Impact of our Physical Education curriculum is measured through the pupils’ competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities. This is evident in our P.E lessons and performances in intra/inter school sports competitions.
