PE Curriculum

P.E. at St Gerard’s RC Primary School plays a vital part of everyday school life. All pupils have a minimum of two hours of PE timetabled each week. P.E. offers children a combination of physical education, physical activity and competitive sports.

Our aim is to develop children’s ability in a range of physical activities, to ensure children are able to sustain physical activity for a period of time and encourage children to engage in competitive sports and activities. In doing so, this will enable children to confidently lead healthy, active lives during and beyond school.

The National Curriculum for P.E.

The National Curriculum for P.E. focuses on developing the necessary knowledge, skills and techniques to enhance their sporting ability. In EYFS and Key Stage 1, children will develop fundamental movement, balance, agility and co-ordination skills and begin to apply these to a range of sporting activities. They are given opportunities to perform individually and with others and are encouraged to co-operate in competitive physical challenges, both against self and others. In Key Stage 2, children develop previously taught skills, learning how to use them in a variety of ways. It is here where children becoming increasingly more involved in competitive sports, modified where appropriate, and apply other principles such as attacking, defending and team work. Children will learn how to identify where improvements can be made and how to evaluate and recognise their achievements. KS2 children also get the chance to go swimming during term time.

Please Click Here for the PE Kit List.

Please can all children bring to school the following for P.E. lessons:

  • White t-shirt
  • Navy or black shorts
  • Sports footwear (indoor and outdoor)
  • In winter, a warm top and bottoms

We ask for P.E. kits to be brought into school and left in school for the full half term, then to be taken home to  be washed and brought in the following half term.

***Spotlight on PE***
Our first pupil who we are ‘putting under the spotlight’ in PE is Aidan in Year 6. Aidan plays wheelchair basketball outside of school for The Tees Valley Titans. Aidan goes to training every Saturday at Outwood Academy and has been going for about a year now. It is fantastic to see our pupils doing so well in extra curricular activities outside of school. Well done Aidan, we are all very proud of you.
