St Theresa's Primary School uses Physical Education to develop the whole child. Children are provided a rich, broad and balanced PE curriculum. Through PE, children should develop behaviour and attitudes that will benefit them throughout school life and beyond.

We believe children should:

  • experience a broad range of activities through curriculum PE time, including gymnastics, dance, games, outdoor Education, athletics, and swimming.
  • Know how to stay fit, healthy, and active and enjoy doing so, choosing to engage in physical activity and sport in their own time.
  • Learn to win and lose, support others and be supported, showing sportsmanship and good character.
  • Work as part of a team towards a common goal as well as individually improving their performance.
  • Be allowed to be creative in a range of activities.
  • Play competitively, respecting officials and other players.
  • Develop spiritually, morally and culturally through diverse activities and opportunities.

We aim to develop the whole child by:

  • Strengthening thinking and decision-making skills 
  • Building and increasing confidence and self-esteem
  • Developing character and resilience
  • Enhancing their commitment and desire to improve 
  • Allowing opportunities for enjoyment, fun and to be free-spirited
  • Fostering feelings of safety and security


  • Pupils participate in weekly high-quality PE and sporting activities.  
  • Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses.
  • We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities before, during and after school.
  • Children take part in regular competitive sporting events against other local school, which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being.
  • Half-termly inter-school competitions are held as an opportunity for all children to show case skills learnt.
  • Outside provided are used to introduce children to a variety of different sporting opportunities.


Through the quality first teaching of PE taking place, we will see the impact of the subject in different ways.

  • Through pupil voice, children will be able to talk about the skills and knowledge they have acquired.
  • Children will be engaged in PE lessons and want to find out more. Participation will show that a range of fundamental skills are being covered.
  • Children are motivated to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives.
