Worth Primary School believes that Physical Education (PE), experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim.  We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Worth Primary, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.



We aim to provide a broad and ambitious PE curriculum developing knowledge of a range of sports, skills and understanding sport as part of a healthy lifestyle as set out in the National Curriculum PE Programs of study and EYFS Framework.


  • PE at Worth Primary School provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including; invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure.
  • The long-term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.
  • Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering two sporting disciplines every half term. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. Several sports clubs are available for children to attend either before or after school.
  • Children participate in small blocks of sessions led by local professional coaches, covering a variety of sports, throughout the year, providing the children with an opportunity to develop, improve their fitness, try something new and be aware of sporting activities they can join locally.
  • Children in Years 3 and 4 swim once a week for 10 weeks. These sessions are held at the local leisure centre during the Autumn and Spring Terms. 
  • Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children.
  • We are members of the local schools’ sports association which enables the children to participate in competitive sport.



We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
