Physical Education

Mrs Jen Harrison 

Miss Kelly Sivill (shadowing ECT)



Hoddlesden St Paul’s Church of England primary school aims to provide its pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum, set within a caring and supportive Christian community in which each member of the school is valued and respected and is empowered to reach their full potential.


Physical Education offers opportunities for children to become skilful performers who acquire and develop skills with increasing competence and confidence through a range of physical activities. They develop their ideas in a creative way learning how to select and apply skills tactics and compositional ideas to suit activities that need different approaches and ways of thinking. Children are able to set and articulate for themselves and compete against others, both individually and as team members.

Our vision for Physical Education in our school is to provide children with a movement foundation for lifelong participation in physical activity. We support all children to be physically literate and encourage their development to be competent and confident movers.


The aims of teaching PE at Hoddlesden St Paul’s:

→  We aim to deliver a Physical Education curriculum that promotes physical competence, self-esteem, confidence, competition, team-work and respect.

→  We aim for children to take initiative and focus on improving aspects of their own performance.

→  We also aim to provide children with opportunities to extend their physical skills through extra-curricular activities.

→  We aim to instil a sports-man like ethical approach to competition and help forge links between the school and wider community.

→  We aim to help develop positive attitudes of participation in physical activity, enabling children to make informed decisions about the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle.


PE is taught through the Early Years Foundation Stage and as a foundation subject within the National Curriculum. 

The aims of PE teaching in the Early Years Foundation Stage is driven by children's interests and curiosity as part of the Physical Development aspect. Opportunities will be planned to enable children to:


*Be active and interactive

*Develop their coordination, control with large and small movements. 

*Understand the importance of physical activity

*Move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space

*Make healthy choices in relation to food
