Physical Education

Physical Education – Junior School


Physical Education provides children with learning opportunities through the medium of movement. Through PE we aim to help children develop physically as well as socially, emotionally and intellectually. PE in our school is designed to support children in every aspect of their life and development.


We envisage that through PE, children will be given the opportunity to develop their physical skills and competencies to their full potential, appropriate to their age and ability in a safe and supportive environment. The planning and management of the PE curriculum in our school will always have the children as the focus of attention through the provision of a broad, balanced and differentiated programme of physical activities.

We endorse the aims of the Primary School Curriculum for PE:


  • To promote the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of the child
  • To develop positive personal qualities
  • To help in the acquisition of an appropriate range of movement skills in a variety of contexts
  • To promote understanding and knowledge of the various aspects of movement
  • To develop an appreciation of movement and the use of the body as an instrument of expression and creativity.

Strands and Strand Units

The curriculum is divided into six strands:

  • Athletics
  • Dance
  • Gymnastics
  • Games
  • Outdoor and adventure activities
  • Aquatics

Each strand is subdivided into strand units and this year we are concentrating on the ‘Games’ strand.
