At St Anne’s Fulshaw C of E Primary School, we intend to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires children and allows them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Our curriculum has been designed to provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way that supports their health, fitness and wellbeing.

Children are given the opportunity to compete in intra-school and inter-school sport and other activities, as competition is essential to building character, and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect.


Our PE curriculum can be linked with literacy, science, maths, IT, art, geography and design technology. It is imperative that clear independent learning objectives are identified where cross-curricular delivery takes place.

In Class 1, the children’s learning is concentrated on developing their core strength, stability, balance, spatial awareness, co-ordination and agility.

Classes 2 and 3, and Classes 4 and 5 have a three-year rolling programme, which ensures equality of access for all pupils throughout their education at St Anne’s Fulshaw.

As part of our commitment to high quality PE teaching and learning, the PE subject leader will investigate and arrange activities and visits from specialists, in consultation with the headteacher, as well as trips out of school to support the delivery of the curriculum.

The PE subject leader is responsible for development and evaluation of the P.E. curriculum to ensure continuity and progression across the school.

This includes:

  • helping teachers with planning
  • reviewing and updating policy as necessary
  • observation of lessons and feedback
  • analysing results of assessments to identify whole school strengths and weaknesses
  • applying for the School Games Mark

Samples of work are collected from each year group in all classes to give an overview of coverage, attainment and progression. Pupils’ progress and performance is assessed by their teachers and recorded against the end of key stage statements on Insight Tracking. This provides the PE Subject leader with a detailed overview of the performance of groups across the school.


The vast majority of pupils leave the school with skills that are at or above age-related expectations. All pupils have taken part in annual intra-school competitions during their time at St Anne’s Fulshaw and almost all have represented their school in sporting competitions and festivals. The proportion of pupils who take part in sporting activities out of school is very high and each year a number of sports teams reach local and county finals in a range of sports.

The sporting links that are made with local clubs and coaches through the initial point of contact at school are substantial, and a high proportion of pupils go on to attend and compete

Our annual Sports Week is always a highlight of the year and both pupils and parents have highlighted how valuable it has been in providing all children with opportunities to try a very wide range of sports both on and off site.

The quality of our PE curriculum and provision has met the standard for the Platinum School Games Award every year since the award was launched, having achieved the Gold Award consistently in previous years.
