Intent, Implementation & Impact Statement for Physical Education (PE)


Kings Norton 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 as well as  good health and well-being. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills and friendships. 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 Kings Norton, not only through the sporting skills taught, but also through the underpinning of our school values and disciplines PE promotes.


·         PE at Kings Norton Primary School provides fun and ambitious 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. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. Children can attend before and after school sport clubs most days, where they can develop their love of a sport and resilience.

·    Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area and community. This is an inclusive approach, which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. These inclusive events also develop teamwork, politeness, respect and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children.  Each year a group of Year 6 children are invited to become Play Leaders for the school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with lunchtime clubs, our annual Sports day and any other Sporting activities. This encourages them to be empathetic and supportive.

·    Children in Years 5 go swimming during the Autumn term, Y6 in the summer..

·    OAA is met in a variety of innovative ways, including school trips, residentials, time in our coppice or accessing our orienteering course on site.

·    Children across KS2 compete in a variety of Level 2 competitions, where they travel to our partnership schools and compete in a variety of sports in a festival or competition format.


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 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.
