The PE Curriculum at All Saints’ is inclusive and challenging. It is centred on educating the whole child, through a broad, yet focused range of activities, for sustained periods of time, offering competitive opportunities for all. The curriculum will develop social skills, empathy, emotional intelligence and sportsmanship; enabling pupils to grow into confident, valued members of the community, who live healthy active lifestyles in both mind and body, leading to a healthy state of wellbeing. Pupils will be gracious in defeat, show humility in victory and determination to succeed.


The PE Department aim to deliver a high-quality Physical Education curriculum to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and well-being. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. The PE curriculum will support pupils to develop their knowledge and understanding of academic vocabulary, both general and subject specific as well as provide opportunities and rely upon pupil’s ability to retrieve knowledge and understand that interleaving, especially in relation to common skills and health and fitness are common place in the curriculum.
