Physical Education

Welcome to our Physical Education page!


Intent, Implementation and Impact


Here is our P.E. Rationale

Please find our PE overview for 2023-2024 below.

Here is our progression map for P.E.

Physical Education at Priestsic


At Priestsic, we value Physical Education. We want them to have no limits to their aspirations, and grow up wanting to be personal trainers, nutritionists, sports journalist or gold medal winners! We enable our pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports both their mental, and physical health and fitness and wellbeing. We encourage positive and inclusive participation in physical education, which will enable children to build self-esteem, team work skills, and positive values and attitudes in P.E. and across the curriculum.


Our PE curriculum has been carefully built and the learning opportunities and assessment milestones for each year group crafted to ensure progression and repetition in terms of embedding key learning, vocabulary, knowledge and skills. In addition to this we provide specialist swimming teaching to pupils in Years 4.


In order to instil a passion within our children for keeping active, we also offer a range of extra-curricular clubs throughout the school year.
