“Physical Education makes every child stronger and every life longer.”


PE curriculum leads – Mrs G Hunter and Mrs T Finnigan

Curriculum Intent

At Toner Avenue Primary school, we aim to provide children with life skills that will have a positive impact now and beyond school life ensuring pupils lead healthy active lifestyles. Within PE, we aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. At our school, we want to teach all children the core fundamental movement skills in order to co-operate and collaborate with others, be part of a team, participate in healthy competition, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We strongly believe all children can achieve and make progress within PE. Our approach to the delivery of PE lessons challenges and supports every child across the school. This approach is achieved through the use of our Real PE scheme of work, which starts from EYFS all the way through to the end of Key Stage 2. Our long term plan is broad and balanced, allowing children to access a wide variety of high quality PE and sports provision.

Curriculum Implementation

We aim 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
  • are given a firm foundation for life-long participation in sporting activity.

Curriculum Impact

PE is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At Toner Avenue, we provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities within PE sessions, after school clubs and external competitions help to develop good sportsmanship and team work.
