Curriculum Intent:


Why our PE curriculum looks like this:

 We believe that children should have the chance to take part in PE in a safe, supportive and challenging environment. We deliver a knowledge rich PE curriculum which develops the children’s, skills, knowledge and understanding so they can perform key skills with confidence in a range of situations, games and sports.  We create and develop every child’s lifelong interest In Physical activity as well as promote a healthy lifestyle.


Our children have a range of opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help embed the other school games values, Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination and Teamwork. We are passionate about teaching children to work together to embed life-long values. 




How PE is taught at St. Alban's:

We provide children with weekly, high quality PE and sporting opportunities. We have developed a long term plan to allow children to develop skills across each year group starting from Reception. Children take part in 'Active days' rather than just a PE lesson to help improve their physical development, skill knowledge and their mental well-being. 


We provide all  children with an active lunchtime break, by giving children the opportunity to take part in a range of sports during this time. We have designated sports coaches to help children and develop their skills. 


We also provide a range of opportunities for children to engage in extra-curriculur activities after school including a range of competitive sporting events across the school year.
