Children First Academy Trust

We thrive and achieve together.

Physical Education

At Fleecefield, we aim to empower our children with fitness and a love for sports, emphasising the lifelong benefits of staying active. Quality Physical Education (PE) is not just a privilege; it's a pathway to new skills, good health, and enriching communal experiences that foster character and values like fairness and respect.

We provide all children from Reception to Year 6 with a minimum of 2 hours of curricular activities per week. With an additional 30 minutes of physical activity per day, alongside extra-curricular activities available to Year 3 to Year 6 each term. 

The PE National Curriculum helps ensure all children:

  • ‚Äč‚ÄčLearn and develop a wide variety of physical activities. 

  • Remain and maintain physically active for a sustained period of time.

  • Are provided with after school extra-curriculum activities

  • Lead active and healthy lives. 

Key Stage 1

Our Key Stage 1 children are taught basic fundamental movements such as: running, jumping along with throwing and catching. This enables them to become more confident as they continue to grow and access a wide range of movements such as: agility, balance and co-ordination. With all these movements children will then find it easier to apply these in a variety of different activities by participating in team games. 

Key Stage 2

In Key Stage 2 children learn and develop a wide range of skills. Children take part in competitive sports, developing their understanding and importance of positive communication. As they continue to grow into their bodies, children also learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success and areas for development. Children continue to use fundamental movements but are also introduced to play competitive team games such as: basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, tag rugby and tennis. In addition to this, children also learn how to develop their balance, control, flexibility, and strength through physical activities such as: athletics, dance, gymnastics and swimming.

After School Clubs

We offer a range of after-school clubs aimed at promoting physical education and fostering a healthy and active lifestyle for our children.  These are designed to be inclusive, ensuring that all pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), have equal access to these enriching extracurricular opportunities.
