Physical Education

P.E Intent


The skills of Physical Education are essential skills for life-long learning. We aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.


It is our intent to inspire children to discover life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.


Our intent is to ensure that the we fulfil all the requirements of the national curriculum for PE including:

  • Developing competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Being physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engaging in competitive sports and activities
  • Leading healthy, active lives


This will give children context to their learning and children will then understand the value of PE to them now, and in their future.

School Houses:


At Christ Church Primary School, we operate a House System. The Houses are named after four local rivers and use the colours red, green, blue and yellow. Children represent their Houses in Sports Day and other sporting/competitive events throughout the year. The Houses each have two House Captains who will help to run and organise the sporting events as well as support the children in their Houses. 


The Houses are as follows:






Autumn Term 2020


This term the children have been participating in the following sports:


- Running/Throwing 

- Basketball

- Football

- Gymnastics

- Dance

- Hockey


The children have been enjoying learning these sports and activities during their PE lessons each week. On top of this they have been learning how to critique and analyse their own performances and create brand new games using what they have learnt.


All of this has helped them develop their confidence in PE and we hope to have the children taking part in inter-house sports competitions in the Summer Term of 2021.




Lockdown Learning:


As we are all currently unable to do PE in school and after school clubs it is really important for us all to keep fit and exercise regularly. To help you with this here are some links for activities you could try at home. I hope you enjoy them and find them useful.
