PE/ Sports


Christ Church (Pellon) Primary School believes that Physical Education (PE), experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We have built a PE curriculum which enables children to develop competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities and results in pupils knowing and remembering more as well as understanding how the knowledge and skills can be applied in their own physical activity and healthy lifestyle. Our curriculum is designed so that children are taught to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team as well as developing pupils to take the initiative and lead, organise and officiate sport. With this, children are taught how to evaluate what needs to be done to improve and how to motivate and instill excellent sporting attitudes and the value of fairness in others. We also believe that swimming is a fundamental life skill and we aspire for all children to leave primary school being able to swim at least 25 metres.


It is the aim of our curriculum to ensure that all pupils:

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


Our long term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met. PE at Christ Church (Pellon) Primary is taught through the REAL PE scheme. Real PE gives EVERY child the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life. This skills-based scheme is fully aligned to the National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering two key skills every half term. In addition, all children take part in ‘Time for Ten’ in which all children run for ten minutes a day this initiative helps meet the government target of all children being active for at least 60 minutes a day. Children participate in workshops covering a variety of sports throughout the year, for example, in dance, outdoor and adventure and rugby. Again this provides children with an opportunity to develop, improve their fitness and to try something new. Children in Years 4 and 5 swim once a week for throughout the school year.

In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. Lunch time sports clubs are available each day and children can attend after school sport clubs which are held on five evenings per week. Children are also invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to not only encourage physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children. Each year a small group of Year 6 children are invited to become Play/Sports Leaders for the school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with lunch-time clubs, our Annual Sports Day and any other sporting activities.
