Welcome to the Physical Education Curriculum Page


Our Physical Education (PE) Curriculum


At Treeton C of E Primary School we follow the National Curriculum for Physical Education (PE). Here is the link to the National Curriculum documentation: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/239040/PRIMARY_national_curriculum_-_Physical_education.pdf


At Treeton C of E Primary School we firmly believe that PE and Sport are not only part of every child's entitlement but also provide opportunities for them to develop key life skills such as teamwork and resilience. Please look at the attached documents to see our PE coverage through school, ranging from Foundation Stage all the way to Year 6. As part of our PE curriculum, we teach the key skills that are needed for a range of sports. We focus on the teaching of these key skills and provide opportunities for these to be applied within team games and competitions, both internally and externally throughout the year. 


Throughout the year we arrange for a variety of additional sporting opportunities for all children, ranging from skipping workshops to dance workshops as well as rock climbing and orienteering. Please keep looking at the PE curriculum page for photos of these exciting events in school. 


Throughout our school our staff use the exciting PE scheme, GetSet4PE, which allows all children to practise the key skills in PE and it gives them an opportunity to practise them in a range of sports such as: dodgeball, athletics, basketball, dance, gymnastics, yoga and many more. Our school also uses Cross Curricular Orienteering to deliver Orienteering in KS1 and KS2, which allows children to develop their map reading skills both individually and as a team.


As a school we have a close working partnership with the Sheffield United Community Foundation who, throughout the year, will be delivering a range of after-school and lunchtime clubs from year 1 to year 6. Please look at our after-school clubs page to find out more information. Last year, in the Summer 2 term, the Sheffield United Community Foundation worked alongside our teaching staff and team taught PE lessons from year 1 to year 6.


Aims and ambitions for Physical Education (PE)


Our aim is for all pupils to:


1. Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.


2. Are physically active for sustained periods of time.


3. Engage in competitive sports and activities.


4. Lead healthy, active lives.


How have we designed our curriculum?


We use the GetSet4PE scheme to structure our curriculum. We chose this scheme because it sequences learning in Physical Education (PE) and supports our staff well to deliver the music curriculum. The scheme is designed to inspire and engage our pupils and teaching staff.  The scheme is progressive whilst always being fun and engaging. The scheme has allowed us to build our bespoke PE curriculum map.

Our school also uses Cross Curricular Orienteering to deliver Orienteering in KS1 and KS2. There are huge benefits to using this scheme, which are outlined below:


  1. Make learning active across the curriculum, putting health and wellbeing at the core of learning.
  2. Meet statutory National Curriculum requirements for KS2 PE by teaching orienteering through OAA.
  3. Make regular use of our school grounds.
  4. Creating a lasting benefit to your children’s health through regular movement and fitness habits.
  5. Raise attainment standards by engaging children in learning through activity, adventure and competition.
  6. Develop the children’s ability to work as a team.
  7. Create an active culture across school. Cross-Curricular Orienteering can be used at any point during the school day – lesson time, break time, lunchtime and after school.
  8. Children learn map reading skills and the children have access to a bespoke map of our school grounds.
  9. Children’s fitness and stamina builds, and they learn habits which will benefit their wellbeing and health for a lifetime.

What do we expect our children to learn in music by the end of each key stage?


Key stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.


Pupils should be taught to:

1. Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities.

2. Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending.

3. Perform dances using simple movement patterns.


Key stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.


Pupils should be taught to:

1. Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination.

2. Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.

3.Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics].

4. Perform dances using a range of movement patterns.

5. Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team.

6. Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
