Our Pupils’ perspective

In PE, we learn new skills linking with previous topics and how sport can help with our physical development. It enables us to know that by engaging in physical activity, our mental and physical health can be developed now and in the future.


Subject Leader

Miss Brown is our leader for PE in school. Her sporty background, energy and passion for sport and the Science behind it makes her an effective leader. She has introduced a bespoke, physically demanding curriculum to our school, which promotes self reflection, team building and praise. Miss Brown strongly believes in a healthy body, healthy mind connection- she enjoys netball, going to the gym and yoga to personally fulfil this. 

PE in school is not the only offer to our children; Miss Brown provides extra curricular activities, opportunities for competitions and links with other clubs and schools free of charge for all of our children in school.


Subject Intent

As a family at St Luke and St Philip’s, we believe that through PE talents will be nurtured and respect is expected, as our school vision enables the children to develop their competition, teamwork and resilience through all the sporting events we do here in our school. During PE lessons, children will have their minds open to sports and grow to develop our values, alongside our scripture as they build their knowledge through their actions, all under the umbrella of God’s love. 

PE provides pupils with the opportunity to learn how to be successful participants in physical activity. It allows pupils to understand what physical activity looks, feels like and how with practice they can improve their skill sets to reach high quality outcomes. Year 3 and 4 pupils will begin to experience a range of activities, leading them to demonstrate basic movements and begin to link skills together to work towards an intended outcome. They will start to understand the requirements of working within different group dynamics. By the time pupils reach years 5 and 6 they will have a deep and varied PE experience. They will be able to call upon an extensive range of skills and link these together to perform more complex movements and tasks. They will have the confidence to work well within a variety of group dynamics and apply tactical and strategic thinking in a range of contexts under pressure. Pupils will be able to evaluate their own performance and that of others.
