Hagbourne CE Primary School P.E Curriculum


At Hagbourne C.E Primary School, we aim to provide a PE curriculum that pupils from Reception to Year 6 not only enjoy but also allows them to experience a range of activities that help them to develop their health, fitness and wellbeing. We intend to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

The national curriculum for PE aims 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



Children are taught regularly by both the teaching staff and a P.E coordinator from Reception to Year 6. We follow a skills progression which is then supported by 'P.E Planning'. The curriculum is further enhanced by participation in numerous sporting tournaments with other schools in the area and after school clubs. 

Year 6 are given the opportunity to be Sports Leaders and lead activities at lunchtimes for the younger children. We aim to ensure that the children participate in active lessons outside of their regular PE lessons. We follow the guidelines set by the national curriculum to ensure we offer a range of PE activities that allow each child to feel challenged and offer opportunities to progress further.


Our P.E curriculum is designed to give all pupils the knowledge to succeed in life. We use strategies from the NASEN guidance to support our scaffolding within P.E teaching. This includes: modelling skills, use clear and precise names for techniques, adapting space, modifications to equipment and support from a teacher or teaching assistant. This is to ensure that all children can participate at any level.



By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study. At Hagbourne Primary School we use summative assessment to determine children’s understanding and inform teachers and P.E coordinator’s planning.
