Outwoods Primary School


At Outwoods Primary School, we aim to provide a PE curriculum that pupils from Reception to Year 6 enjoy and which allows them to experience a wide range of activities that help them to develop their health, fitness and wellbeing and increase their self-esteem. We aim to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. We aspire for children to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience.


 Curriculum Impact

The national curriculum for PE aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives


Curriculum Implementation


Children are taught PE for a minimum of 2 hours a week. The lessons will be taught by the class teacher and at different times throughout the year, by Qualified Sports Coaches. 

Each lesson aims to keep the children active for at least 80% of the lesson time.

The curriculum is further enhanced by participation in numerous sporting tournaments with other schools in the area and after school clubs. 

We aim to train our Young Leaders again to lead and supervise games out on the playgrounds at lunchtimes. Offering a variety of fun games, activities and challenges for all pupils.

We aim to ensure that the children participate in active lessons outside of their regular PE lessons. Teaching staff use the Teach Active resources to ensure children are being active in other areas of the curriculum.

We follow the guidelines set by the national curriculum to ensure we offer a range of PE activities that allow each child to feel challenged and offer opportunities to progress further.


Curriculum Impact

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the skills and processes specified in the skills progression document. At Outwoods we use the PEDPASS assessment documents to determine children’s understanding, track their progress and inform teachers planning. In KS1 Leap to Life documents are also used to plan and track children’s progress.


At Outwoods we aim for children to develop the necessary knowledge, skills and love of physical activity which will have a positive impact on their future by becoming physically active citizens to benefit their long-term health and well-being.PE Curriculum, along with PSHE and science, teaches children about the importance of healthy living Our PE Curriculum, along with PSHE and science, teaches children about the importance of healthy living and learning about the need for good nutrition.
