Burbage Primary School

Physical Education


Physical Education (PE) is planned and taught via the National Curriculum.  Please see our planning documentation at the end of this page.  All children access one lesson per week from our specialised Sports Coach, Mr Hill as well as a lesson delivered by their class teacher.  In addition to our core PE curriculum, many extra-curricular sporting activities are provided for the children.  Please see our webpage on clubs and the Sports Premium funding for details (links below).

 Extra-curricular provision

Sports Premium

The Physical education curriculum at Burbage Primary School will:

  • build upon prior experiences so that children can regularly revisit, refine and develop their skills
  • provide opportunities for children to experience a range of physical activities, including; dance, athletics, games, gymnastics, swimming and outdoor learning
  • deliver a high-quality programme that is suited to each individual in the school
  • Every child is valued and supported at our school, regardless of any special need or ability. Having a differentiated approach during activities allows children to aim to be the best they can be
  • expose all children to various opportunities: after school and lunchtime clubs, PE events, PE sessions with sports coaches, meeting inspirational athletes, attending swimming sessions, and participation in non-traditional sports (e.g. Boccia) and SEND inclusive events

Physical education teaching at Burbage Primary School will:

  • have a differentiated approach during activities, allowing all children to access sessions and aim to be the best they can be
  • promote good sportsmanship and positive attitudes towards PE and grow life-long healthy habits
  • provide opportunities for children to work collaboratively and independently, lead and take direction
  • stretch and challenge children whilst also allowing them to take responsibility for setting the level of their challenge
  • ensure children have a regard for their own safety and the safety of others

Assessment of Physical education at Burbage Primary School will:

  • be formative, informing planning and how to best deliver further teaching
  • focus on ensuring the learning of the National Curriculum statements and that all children are reaching their full potential through teacher’s observations during sessions
  • draw on planning to understand the progress that has been made by children
  • identify children who require additional support and those who excel in the knowledge, skills and understanding required in PE (through identifying these children it is assumed that all others – the vast majority – have achieved the objectives at the level expected of their year group
